Chapter 14. Putting Yourself on the Web > Using Mac OS X to Serve Web Pages

Using Mac OS X to Serve Web Pages

For most Mac users, a hosting service is the way to go. Hosting services handle the hard work of maintaining the hardware and software that is needed to serve your site to the Web. A hosting service must also deal with all the hacking to which most Web sites are subjected. A hosting service enables you to concentrate on your Web site rather than the Web server that provides it to the Web. Additionally, you can get many other services that make your Web site even more powerful (such as domain name registration).

However, there might be situations in which you want to be your own hosting service. If you have a site that will be accessed in a limited fashion by people outside of your local network, hosting your own site can be an easy and effective way to share information. Also, you can easily host a site that will be accessed through your local intranet.
