Mobile Web Server is a lightweight and fast Web Server especially designed for android mobile devices. It can be used to host websites and to serve files over HTTP. A HTML file MUST be selected as the startup page by browsing the device directory. Once the Mobile Web Server is started, a web page should be able to open according to the WIFI IP address. The Port is fixed as 8089. Thus, the URL should be in this format “http://<wifi-ip-address>:8089”. To make Mobile Web Server as a public server, a dynamic DNS server should be subscribed from Internet in order to get a valid public domain name.
If low cost Internet service is available and every mobile phone is assigned with a dedicated IP address, why not mobile phone as your simple web hosting server? This is not an imagination picture in mind, it can be realized on coming future such as IoT on 5G.
