you need to make sure your account with your isp allows you to have your 
own server, which means you have a static ip, then you need to register 
a domain name and get your isp's ( or local) name server to have your ip 
and domain name linked, the go submit your domain ( site) to search engines.
you would have to have the server online all the time, and the site 
scripted by this point.

check your isp's site for thier info about this. probably comercial 
account section.
