Haha ATSpace. I like it, just set one up myself
Another alternative might be a bit more taxing but I also do this -
you can setup a Free Domain name (they have just reduced the number of free names and limits - gah) but
you can consider it. This gives you the ability to have something like http://myserver.thruhere.net
(as an exmaple, you make up the
part of that name) which points to your IP address at home that you're using now to access the net (or any IP you have access
Then you can use something called Abyss Web Server
(Free personal web server - dead easy to use) and use
your home machine or one setup specifically for this, to host your server/files.
It's a little more taxing in that if you have a dynamically assigned IP address from your ISP, you will need to use a small utility from the
site that Updates their records with your changed IP. Also that you would need to have a
machine on as often as you needed people to access your site.
It sounds more complicated than it is, but it's a great way to get involved with the basics.
If you have a Static IP address (Never changes) then it would be a lot easier, and you could even fork out a small amount to get a real domain name
and point the services records to your static IP address at home.
Alternatively, and a lot easier is the suggestion from spanners - I think it certainly is easy and 50mb is not too bad for a free website these days.
