    you would have to leave it on, otherwise how could it "serve" up the files. Also be sure not to let the computer hibernate or anything that involves stopping the hard drive.

    alright thanks also how do i make it so the ip that ppl type in is words instead of the actual ip i know you need dyndns or something like that and i have that but from there i dont know where to put the information to make it so it acepts it. I tried typing it in but to no luck. Also for the dyndns host should i use my external ip or my ipv4

    You seem like you're not knowlegable enough to run a server, try looking up some tutorials.

    And I really don't recommend running a server on your home computer.

    not sure, and dont quote me on this, but you might need to actually buy a domain name and run that through dyndns

    www.no-ip.com, sign up, register an account, press Add host (look around for it), select DNS Host (A), put in your IP, put the IP you want (select a domain then put yours), for example blah blah blah.no-ip.org or .sytes.net which ever.

    Also, if its 24/7 get a VPS, Dedi or shared hosting. Home Computers aren't the way to go.

    I would suggest using what Liberality posted :) just use your external ip and follow the instructions you should be fine.
