How can I publish the geostories of the mapstore on the web?

It may be a rudimentary question.

I think geostory can be a great alternative to 'Esri Storymap'.
Installing a map store and testing several functions on localhost was successful.
But how can I share my geostories with others on the web? Do I need to install something else besides the mapstore?
(I'm a private user, and I'm in a Windows 10 environment)

Anyone, please answer.

you need to host your MapStore somewhere that is accessible to the internet, like a dedicated server or a public cloud like AWS.
There are plenty of resources on the web on how to host you own application; in the end MapStore is bundled as a WAR so you can research on how to serve on the web a Java web application.
This should get you started....

Thank you for your answer.
Let me ask you one more question.
I found the instruction to upload the WAR file using Tomcat jsp hosting provided by the hosting company.
Is what I found the right way?

Sorry for the late reply. Did you find a solution in the meantime? Usually they are "JSP & Servlet" (MapStore uses servlet), 
I'm not sure if your provider limits servlet usage or what. Tomcat hosting should be ok.
