Check with AT&T WorldNet in your area. Here in San Antonio, for $50 a
month, you can hang your own server off of their backbone downtown.
From there, run whatever services you want- Web, FTP, mail, you name
it. The only thing beyond the $50 you'd have to pay is the actual
domain name registration.
If that sounds like more than you want to do- PLENTY of places
advertise unique domain service for $9-19.95/month in the back of
Wired magazine. Hope this helps.
