Web Hosting. Deploy anything from Apache to Zope.

You don’t need to be an experienced webmaster to host your own home page, website, or Web 2.0 application with Mac OS X Server. With its intuitive administrative interface, you can immediately start up a static website or deploy even the most sophisticated of sites.

Web Hosting

Powered by Apache.

Included in Mac OS X Server is Apache, the most widely used HTTP server on the Internet. Apache is preconfigured with default settings, so deployment is as simple as starting the Web service. Any HTML content saved to the server’s default web folder will be served over the Internet automatically. Mac OS X Server offers experienced webmasters support for using either Apache 2.2 or Apache 1.3 from within the Server Admin application.

Deploy the Web 2.0.

Everything you need to develop, deploy, and host reliable Web 2.0 applications is included. Mac OS X Server ships with a full complement of server applications and frameworks including Apache 2, Ruby on Rails, Tomcat 5, and WebObjects 5.4. For hosting enterprise-class applications, Mac OS X Server includes a 64-bit Java VM optimized for the latest generation of Intel multicore processors.

Hosting multiple websites.

Support for virtual hosting in Mac OS X Server allows you host multiple websites on a single server. Using Server Admin, you can configure each website on your server to have a different domain name (using virtual domains) and even a different IP address. In addition, each website can be configured with unique security options and separate log files for tracking and reporting.

Be dynamic.

Apache is extremely flexible, so you can add dynamic content for a more interactive Internet solution. Dynamic content enables you to host stores, auctions, shared calendars, portal systems, polls, and other database-driven services. The robust server-side architecture in Apache supports dynamic content generated by server-side includes (SSIs), PHP, Perl, Apache modules, and custom CGIs — as well as by JavaServer Pages (JSPs) and Java Servlets.

Secure web services.

Mac OS X Server integrates OpenSSL with the Apache web server, providing support for strong 128-bit encryption and public key infrastructure (PKI) authentication using X.509 digital certificates. This high-grade security architecture protects credit card information and other confidential personal and business data transmitted during web transactions.
