    I have a question that is probably going to be very hard to explain so I will try as thorough as I can. I have Mac OS X Server 10.6 and I also have a website on Startlogic. It is just a normal website (Personal is what they call it). And I changed the DNS on that site to ex. ns1.example.com and filled in example with my websites name. Is there a way I can turn this website into a VPN. I deleted all the files within it including the index file.

    Although you can create SSL VPNs via a website, if the website is not on your personal network, it won't work.

    So Is it possible to create a website on my personal network?

    Certainly, but if you're on a residential connection, there's more work than just creating a website. Search the forums as there are plenty of threads about this.
