A frequently-asked query:
So lets say I have 2 servers, one server running mydomain.com and the other running mysite.com. Only problem is I only have one Router which as of now, can only do 1 port forward to Port 80. I need both websites to be accessed publicly on the internet. More clearly, mysite.com will be a file server which supplies mydomain.com with images.
I’m not interested in host headers/consolidating both websites onto 1 server. I have access to about 5 Public IP’s, and a couple domain names. How do I set this up exactly?
Forgot to mention, I dont want to change anything in the registry on either server, nor have anything Active Directory related. I want to duplicate the way datacenters run things.
@ Kit, Yes I have all access to the equipment. If I did assign each webserver a public Static IP, how do I go about protecting them? There would be no NAT involved at that point. I really dont want to purchase a router for each website that I decide to host. But if it is a must, please let me know.
I also want to avoid placing servers in a DMZ.
Answer: It’s very difficult to maintain your own server at home especially if your are hosting so many sites. Aside from it’s difficulty in maintaining and/or set it up, it is costly on the long run and requires a good foundation in web hosting.
