hosting my own web site ... how to configure

I would like to host my own web site. I have the necessary hardware, modem, router to 3 PCs. One of the PCs will be hosting the web site with a J2ee web server. I will be getting high speed cable with 1 static IP (I guess at the router). Can someone tell me where I can get the necessary info to configure and test the web site while maintaining a high level of security.
