    Hi,

    It needs to be published on a server that can be reached from the internet. AFAIK most if not all hosting services shouldn't require buying a domain name (you can usually use <nameyouchose>.<hostingservicename>.com

    Hi Sasi Kumar,

    If you do not want to buy and map custom domain, you can try:

    Approach 1: deploy application and configure your website on your IIS server, then access it via server public ip +port

    Approach 2: as PatriceSc mentioned, some hosting services do not require buying and mapping a custom domain, such as [Azure App Service](https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/app-service/), if possible, you can host your application on Azure and access it with https://{application_name}.azurewebsites.net

    elaborate it step by step
    Probably not going to happen.

    Google how to make the IP address of your computer available over the internet.  When a browser goes to your IP address, IIS running on your computer will serve the pages.

    This involves changing modem/router settings, and in most cases is not permitted unless you have a business-class internet service provider.  You will not get step by step instructions in a forum post.

    open up free account on Azure

    install WebDeploy

    create web app / publish profile

    download publish profile from Azure

    From VS hit publish and load the publish profile

    Go
