    Before building your web sites and web service, some simple steps will be needed to help you to use the service. First, download and install the mobile web server-FineWS on your iPhone from app store (address). Second, execute FineWS and register a User ID through iPhone, The User ID registered will be part of your dedicated URL on the internet, for example, the User ID is alex then your URL will be alex.finemobileweb.net. Third, start the web server with the User ID you registered. After these steps your iPhone can be accessible via the browsers from PC and smartphone.
