    Yes.

    Assuming that the webiste is running you will need to get a domain name pointed at your site. For a home PC, the simplest way is Dynamic DNS. You will also need to open port 80 on your router and forward requests to your machine.

    Obviously, this means your PC is open to the net so take what ever security measures you feel you need.
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?
