{article} Where can I get a cheap web server?]

Question by hola: Where can I get a cheap web server?
I don’t want to pay for a companies services, I want to run my own web server. I want to learn this kind of stuff, and I have no idea where I can find a cheap, but working web server. I am going to install PHP and MySQL and some other stuff, can anyone help me?

Also, I don’t care about down time and anything like that, I want to try this on my own without a host. Thanks guys!!!

Read http://webdingers.com/wordpress/2009/07/creating-a-website/ That’s how. (The site itself ran on a “non-hosted” server for about 6 months – an old P4 running Apache, MySQL and PHP.)

Question by emma: Web Hosting?
I registered a domain name for my company a few years ago, as an example www.greatsolutions.co.uk.

I want to be able to make it into a website now, i want to get a company to host the website (i’m going to figure out how to design it in something like MS frontpage). Can i just tell them my domain name or do i have to ‘deregister’ it from the register company and reregister it with the new company or what?

Finally will i be able to get an email address like [email protected] from a webhost company?

Does any have any recommendations of a company that could do this for me, i want someone i can use (i am UK based) and offers good value for money (not necessarily the cheapest), good customer service etc.
I want a web hosting company that specifically hosts websites not a huge company like yahoo who do many different things, i also want someone based in the UK with a decent ‘person’ customer service that i can speak to. Don’t know of anyone that has ever spoken to someone at Yahoo

You should be asking this question at the help option of Yahoo! instead of Yahoo questions and answers. I think they will be able to accomplish everything you want done (for a fee so make sure ask about the price).
