If you need to do it on the extremely cheap, you can host on your own
machine on a port other than 80, make sure your router / firewall is
forwarding the port to your machine, and use dyndns (http://dyndns.com) to
give yourself a domain name. CherryPy (http://cherrypy.org) makes the python
side of hosting a simple service or app quite painless. I use this method to
host a little app for downloading Ubuntu packages and their dependencies as
a tarfile on my personal machine.
