Makeuseof published a great tutorial on how to turn your Raspberry Pi into a web server and host your own site!
There are various good reasons to setup a Raspberry Pi as a webserver. For instance, your desktop computer may not have the available system resources to serve pages reliably. Alternatively you might be interested in using it as an always-on web server offering content that anyone can access, which means leaving the device switched on for lengths of time. As the Raspberry Pi has a very low energy footprint, this makes it an ideal choice.
Other reasons exist. The size of the computer makes it useful as a portable device, something that might prove useful if you are trying to run a web server in a territory where this isn’t usually allowed, or if hosting is expensive for you…
