Question: Would it work if I am on a network?
Possum
Yes it does

I would recommend giving the computer that has the website a permanent IP address.

WAMP is a excellent program but if your a MAC user use MAMP at http://www.mamp.info/en/index.html

some ISP's don't allow this. I'd suggest checking with them.

Hi

I solved that problem by not telling them.. Just kidding..

I will need to look into that as I totally forgot..

Thank You..

The bad thing is you'll need to let your computer on every time, which will tear it and cost electricity.

Plus, you'll need to employ adequate security measures for the server (ie. updating regularly, setting up firewall, secure configuration) if you don't want your computer to be compromised. Hosting companies (or frihot Smile) take care of these for you.

I can't seem to access the website. That may be my ISP's fault or Google Chrome's... But thanks for the post.

if you are going for seo compliant urls, i would add a wildcard redirect to www.udopage.com

xampp is a good alternative though. I've used it some years ago for testing purposes, and it's quick and easy to setup.
