Actually for setting up a tor hidden service, Tor's official guide explains, but it asks us to set up a LOCAL web server first. I do not get this part, because I do not think any one would like to use local web servers for Tor hidden services, this way when you turn off your computer, the hidden service will go down (or maybe I'm wrong).
How should we set up a dedicated server for a Tor hidden service? The server can be anywhere in the world, and we would use SSH or PuTTY for customization.
What do you think of this? Any idea?
