I have to create a Sharepoint Foundations 2013 site that is available to internal and external users.
I have set up Sharepoint to be accessible to internal users only using two servers (one for Sharepoint Foundations 2013 and one for the Office Web Apps Server) over http following the technet articles online.

I don't know any of the necessary steps to allow this to be accessible (and fast) via external users.
I've never created something so that it is accessible outside my network.

Help!

You need to configure forms based authentication for external access.Second thing is that you need to have proper licensing for Windows Server 2008 as SharePoint foundation doesn't have its own licenses. Configure the web app zones, firewall and DNS properly.
Check this article. This is all you need to know.

Thank-you. This is going to be a big challenge and will take a considerable amount of time.
I am planning to move over to Windows Server 2012R2 (start from scratch).
Does your licensing point still apply?
The link refers to SharePoint Foundation 2010 and I will be utilizing 2013. Will this be much of an issue/difference?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

If its foundation , licensing is required for Windows server. Go for either standard or enterprise version where you get to have CAL licensing done for SharePoint.

Mohit - I'm not clear on licensing. We'd like to make Foundation work but are you saying that we need to move over to standard or enterprise licensing for SharePoint or a different type of licensing for Windows Server 2012R2?

Yes that's correct.. I would suggest you to follow the article for foundation 2010 I provided earlier. Configuration and settings remains the same. Something you need to research more is with Windows server licensing.
