I just finished the tutorial on how to make regsitration and authentication.
I want to show my friend my progress.
I am on a computer with a static IP address. Is there some way to serve my page to the outside world?

Your friend could access your site by typing http://YourIPAddress/, just take in mind to allow port 80 (http) connections in your firewall settings. You could also check here -

Need more help.

Wait, that doesn't help at all. I have .NET installed already. I need help using it.
What do I do to serve up a webpage?
CTRL+f5 in Microsoft Visual Web Developer does not host at port 80.
I do not know how to use IIS 7.0

OH I see what you were trying to answer. I already knew how to get a DNS server to point to my IP.
The problem is that I can't get my IP to serve anything outside of local host.

I found my problem. My firewall was blocking port 80.
People still can't ping me

In the very begining just get in touch with your ISP and ask if that would be allowed and only then continue installing the host
