Chapter 2. Setting Up Your UltraDev Work... > Choosing Your Web Server Software

Choosing Your Web Server Software

If you work for a medium or large organization, it’s likely that the choice of a Web server platform is not up to you because your company may already be running one or more servers on a specific platform. If, however, you are in charge of setting up your Web server from scratch or your department will be running your dynamic Web pages from a departmental server (such as for a departmental intranet), you must decide which Web server software best suits your needs based on the application’s platform, stability, and price. The following sections highlight the features of the major Web servers in use today.

Personal Web Server

Personal Web Server, shown in Figure 2.3, is a handy little application that can turn any computer running Windows into a low-volume Web server. Although Personal Web Server is not ideal for a full-blown corporate Web site, it does a relatively good job hosting small Web sites and is an ideal environment for testing Web sites using Active Server Pages. In addition, Personal Web Server is quick to set up, easy to use, and free from Microsoft. This makes Personal Web Server an excellent solution for UltraDev developers who wish to test their ASP pages on their Windows 9x or ME workstation before publishing them to their NT or 2000 server.
