Hi,

Don't know about windows 7, but you can host a site using Apache (which works on Windows, and is the World's # 1 web server software) and some additional software for ASP (I noted some freeware for ASP on the web, but I am a Java and JSP person so...). You will need to purchase a static IP address(a bit expensive) OR use a service which provides you with a static IP address (for a fee[cheap]; try tzo.com).

Apache is free by the way, and not that hard to set up. Attaching the software for ASP could be a problem however. Be brave!

If you just want to show them the project on your computer (, no problem. Once on the Internet, you need a static IP address or (as dnanetwork mentioned) to work off somebody else's web server. That may be your best option (as they have a web server/application server which is already set up. If you want to run your own web/application server (and have significant time to set them up), you need a static IP address (same as you need a fixed address to get your home mail). Most ISPs do not provide static IP addresses (they assign IP addresses on connection).
