can you be more detailed please. i almost couldn't understand what you are asking for, but anyway i will give you some hints.since you are posting in asp.net section then your website is in asp.net, so first the general idea of creating websites in programming languages that you should install a web server on your pc like (XAMPPfor php pages and IIS for asp pages) so that you can test your site locally, debug and fix errors after that you can test your site or add more codes in a hosting server. if you want to know how to create website pages in asp.net, tell me and i will suggest you some good books and tutorials.

Just mentioning "localhost" implies that you already have a known server set up on your system, probably Apache. Unless you have a firewall blocking access to your server, then your server is already available to the internet through your IP address. Most home ("residential") connections are not suitable for hosting a website and some ISPs may cancel your service for attempting to host your own website (on a residential line). The only reason i can think of for "localhost" not working is either do to your server not running or being misconfigured.If you are looking to migrate what you have on your system over to a web host, you'll have to know how to use a FTP client and know how to back-up and restore a MySQL database.

Basically I have tried all of the servers ect.. and it wont work and then i found a website hoster which allowed me to open phpmyadmin on there server and create databases I was just wondering what do I have to do to the coding where your ment to put localhost what do i put there ?? Thanks because even though I could probably get a degree in html I still cant figure out how to use asp which wont work and ive tried everything so I gave up and used someone elses host I wanted to know would there server work for the coding ?

Ok but i recently upgraded to win7 home Pro does that have something to do with it ???

The FTP sounds to much like hard work I will just leave my website kinda boring

Depends; if you upgraded from XP, then you would have to reinstall and configure everything. It is also quite possible that the server you were using does not support Windows 7 yet. What server did you install?

if you want, tell me what server do you want to install and i am ready to help i can point you to some good tutorials or you can post the errors here and we are ready to help. i still thinking that testing your files directly on the hosting is a bad idea. most of hosting websites show your files as plain text and there is no undo, so if you delete anything by accident or missed anything you will get a series of errors that never ends.

another point, you mentioned "PHPMYADMIN" and "using asp" you know they are completely different things RIGHT?
phpmyadmin used with php pages and XAMPP sever , IIS used with asp pages and you can get it from your windows cd. it is one of the windows features. after installing it you should make a default web site from control panal> administrative tools> internet information services. this should point to your asp files to make it works.

anyway, about what should you put instead of localhost in the hosting website, you should put your hosting server name. good luck.

Hi!@mranimationistIn your post, you mentioned that you have recently upgraded from Microsoft Windows XP and I would like to ask the same question as a previous poster has asked - did the upgrade from Windows XP break anything. Also, you have mentioned that you have upgraded to Microsoft Windows 7 Home Pro. Windows 7 Home Edition and Windows 7 Professional are two different products. If you have upgraded to Windows 7 Home Edition, I am guessing that you may not have access to the Internet Information Service, the web server provided with Microsoft Windows (I may be wrong here, but I've heard that the home edition either does not include IIS or has a crippled version of it in terms of the number of simultaneous connections). In either case, you might want to move to try the evaluation versions of the server editions of software available from the Microsoft download center website - you can get a copy of Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Visual Studio Ultimate, and Microsoft Windows Server 2008 from the downloads section as evaluation versions to try them and set them up on your computer. The Web Platform Installer for the Internet Information Server will enable you to install the .NET Framework and PHP server-side scripting support by following an easy-to-use wizard interface.If you do prefer to use the Apache web server instead of the Internet Information Server, you could get a server bundle such as XAMPP or the WAMP Server, both of which include support for PHP server-side scripts and include the MySQL database. The Apache web server does not provide support for the Microsoft .NET framework (but it does have modules for the Mono framework!).If you would like help with server setup, feel free to post to the forum and I or one of the other members would be glad to walk you through the process of setting up the software for you.

yeah k_nithin_r i agree with you, i am quiet sure that microsoft windows xp home edition doesn't support IIS, but Microsoft windows xp professional do. so that must be the same for microsoft windows 7. but just in case, i suggest you to check your windows features to make sure if it supports IIS or not.

Hi!

@web_designer

You had me look :-)

I've looked up the Microsoft Technet article that mentions that it is possible to install the Internet Information Service on Microsoft Windows 7 Home Starter, Home Basic, and Home Premium editions. It is installed via the control panel via the Windows features link. You can get SQL Server Express and Visual Web Developer for free too!

BTW, Windows Vista and Windows 7 do not limit the Internet Information Services in any way like the version on Windows XP did - you get access to all of the features of the web server without any restrictions on the maximum number of connections or files.

If anyone would like to have a look at the source article for reference, the link to the Microsoft Technet article is:
