the cheapest is CERN, however you need to have UNIX or LINEX server.
If you are using NT, IIS is not bad. Easy config.

omnihttpd IS a web server.  when it is running you should see a globe in the system tray of the task bar.  double-click that globe and you can see and set the parameters for your web site.  another freeware web server you might try is xitami (do an internet search for it).  i used xitami for several years as a server for the department at my college until i had to migrate to wNT and iis4.  of all the freeware http servers i tried, xitami was the best.
