I have 2008 standard edition and I want to start hosting and creating web sites. I have registered a domain name. Got commercial internet service with a static IP address. I got my gateway hooked up to my router which is a (belkin) and my server hooked up to the router. I have a setup six roles on my server, active directory domains services, active directory federation services, dns server, file server, print services and web server. I have contacted my hosting company and changed my dns server to my static IP address. I have assign my static IP address to my belkin router. And in my router I have assigned all http port 80 to my server, through a IP address assigned to my server from the router. And also the dns an FTP traffic is routed to my server through the router. I have some knowledge of this but it is not doing what I want it to do. Can someone please help me to set this thing up so I can host my web sites.
