View Full Version : Web Host for Testing

09-16-2012, 09:45 PM
I'm a computer science major and I'm just now finishing up my first programming class (JavaScript). Our last tutorial is on AJAX and to test my tutorial program, I need to be able to host a couple of files on a server. I know NOTHING about web hosting and was hoping someone could point me to a free, easy to use web server where I could test my tutorial and case problem.

I did a search and there's a ton of advertisement crap and very little useful information on what to look for.

Thank you,

Do it locally. Set up your own server. XAMPP (http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html) is pretty much the catch-all for all platforms. If you need help, there are hundreds of guides on installing it, though IIRC your root folder is htdocs in the installation directory.
