I think we could have a better talk in German but I want to publish
this mail to the pi3-users. My name is Holger and I come from Germany.
I use the pi3 server since my 2nd day using the internet and I
made some interesting things with this nice piece of software.
In the beginning I tried out some things (CGI) offline with the server
because online tests weren't possible/were too expensive. Meanwhile I
want to realize some other (programaming) stuff with the server.
Ok, enough about me - you want to set up some things on the server.
You must fulfill some preferences to realize what you want:
-Write your own homepage in HTML (use a HTML Editor)
-Generate links to the files you want to publish for downloading
-Start the server and connect your computer to the internet.
-Everybody can see your site at his web browser - if he knows the
address of your host. This is a problem because many ISP's (providers)
generate a dynamic IP address for you. This address changes every time
you are connected to the internet. There are many tools to publish
your actual private IP address (via e-mail or in your homepage at your
ISP's host, if you have one)
-If you have a fixed IP address you are lucky - you can register a own
domain name for this address (i.e. wolfbenzinger.de) too. Getting a
fixed address or domain name registration is a task for your ISP and
you have to pay some money for it. It is also possible you are working
in a LAN or intranet-environment with a permanent connection to the
web - you can use an IP address of your workstation - ask your admini-
strator. But there are some security issues you should know ...
But this is too much for today.
By the way - my private solution should work like this:
I use my small (and free) homepage hosted by my ISP day and night
to publish and refresh my private IP-address automatic.
If I am online the people I like could access to this page and surf
to my private server. Its too expensive for me to be connected 24 hours
or to get a own domain name at this time.
Enough for today
If you have any questions contact me again

There are some usefull informations about my homepage-project on the
last page (only true in Germany).
