you do not need to buy a server to run a web page.

You do need web-server software, such as IIS or Apache. Running these on any PC will serve as a web server for you. You will, however, need to purchase a domain name. Otherwise your web page will only be an IP addy.


Web hosting is cheap. Up here in Canada we can get web space for 3.99 a month, and a domain name for 14.99 a year. I suggest buy it web space rather than running your own, its hella easier.
