The first thing you would need to do check to see if your ISP allows you to host your own web site. ISP's like verizonFIOS or cablevision do not allow you to host your own web site and they block port 80. I do host my own website, -- does not block ports on your connection. After you have confirmed this, you will need to install IIS on your sever, and then configure a DNS record for your web page. It is not difficult to do and would be happy to assist you.
