Running a Webserver.

hi, for the last few days I been makeing some little websites in frontpage. I use PWS webserver.

the other day I was talking to some ppl on line that whould like to see my webdesigns, so I give them My IP, the problum is I do not really want to keep giveing My IP cos my router sometimes restarts and I lose the IP and get a new one. So the old IP a gave before will not work.

is there any way to stop this happening, I was speaking to someone and they said you can buy a static IP, but I not that much money at the moment is there anything else I can do.

Thanks.

if you router allows it, you could always get a statoc hostname

Running a Webserver.

The DG834 supports dyndns, which will update their servers every time your IP address changes.

To set this up follow the link above.

If you are planning on running webserver long term, then I would suggest that you look at changing to a package that has a Static IP address.
