Have you looked at the Minecraft wiki, on the section for servers?

I would look up the (many many many) guides to set up a server.

There are many.
Did your world disappear from minecraft? Is it corrupt? Lags? Can't move? "Saving Chunks" Crash? Crashes when you open chests? It can be saved!

First go to www.minecraft.net/download then you download the minecraft_server.jar "Double click on the "Minecraft_Server.exe" file and the server should start.
If Windows does not recognize the filetype (You are being prompted to select a program to open it with), it may be because Minecraft_Server is missing the .exe extension. This can be fixed by renaming the Minecraft_Server file to Minecraft_Server.exe. If it worked, the icon should now be the Minecraft symbol.
If this does not work, you will have to go into a command window by opening Run, typing cmd and pressing enter. Once there you need to navigate to the folder you have created.
To do this:
Ensure you are in the proper drive (usually c drive). Type C: and then hit enter to access the c drive
Now you need to call the directory (open the folder). Type cd \"folder name" then hit enter. Make sure to include the quotation
Ensure you are in the proper directory. Type dir and command will generate a list of contents of the folder, you should see minecraft_server there.
Rename Minecraft. Type rename minecraft_server minecraft_server.exe then hit enter. This should add the .exe extension to the executable and it should now operate correctly" Then you click the +1 under this comment.
