redhat linux has a package manager, usethat to install apache. find out where your website root is and put your webcontent there.

Suggest you start reading - RedHat Tips, FAQs and HOWTOs - check out the General Networking, Web and FTP, and then find yourself a site or book that tells you how to configure it all and make it secure. Don't put it on the 'Net before you make it as secure as possible.

Thanks for your inputs, But my probelm is different, With static IP address website is working to external users but with name can't access. I don't have registered domain name. Is it possible to setup a website without a domain name by giving some dummy domain name like above. or how to create a sub domain?

You can't just put a name on your web site and expect the world to use it - it's a issue of registered Domains and DNS.

You have to register a domain name and have two DNS servers (I believe you can get away with only one with two IPs) up and running before the domain can be registered. As I have recently found out, you can give ANY DNS servers - an ex-employee has a domain that he pointed to our external DNS servers - we receive errors in the error log all day long. Verisign will do nothing about it. He isn't using our DNS servers, just pointing his domain there until he can get his own. Our legal department is suppose to look into it.
