Bringing our web site inhouse.

By lcohen ·
Our company would like me to move our Website inhouse. It is currently being hosted by an outside company. We already have our Internet Information Server and a Cisco Pix Fire Wall and T1 internet access. I have never done this and need help. How do I bring our Website in house?

In order to host your own website, you need 4 things:

1) A permanent, high speed connection to the internet with a static IP address.
- It sounds like you already have this.

2) A registered domain name.
- Whoever is hosting your website right now would have registered the name for you.

3) A DNS server that points your domain name to your IP address.
- Register.com, or whoever you are registering your domain name with can handle this.

4) An entry in your firewall that permits web traffic to flow to and from the webserver.
- Your network administrator should be able to take care of this. If you need more specific instructions, I will need more information about your network.

I have recently set up a in house website for a client with a configuration very similar to yours. I will asume you are using nat and or pat with your pix fire wall. and you have a private ip address set up on the inside and you have a internet public address on the outside. In your pix you will need to set up a static command wich maps a dedicated outside internet address to the web server. you will also need to set up a conduit in you pix that allows http traffic to enter your network. Set up IIS with the proper permissions and point it to your website file on that server. Get you ISP or The people who are hosting your website now to change there DNS records to point to the internet address that is mapped to your web server. It may take a day or so for that DNS record to get replicated all over the world but it should work after that.
