Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am hosting my website at home on Windows 7.

  1. I configured port forwarding for http
  2. I configured the firewall enabling http
  3. the IIS is running, the localhost is working

I configured the domain to my server, but I cannot access my system from outside. What am I missing.

Are you certain your ISP is not firewalling you? Many ISPs disallow you to host services. They setup firewall rules to prevent you from doing this. –  Zoredache Oct 2 '10 at 8:04
