      you can host a site yourself, Sky don't provide webspace, but it might be against T&C's as Sky BB is a consumer service for basic browsing - running a site that you require to be up 24/7 won't be allowed as there's no SLA should something go wrong...you'd have no leg to stand on...

      Extract from T & Cs -
      (h) To protect our network and maintain quality of service for all our users we can temporarily or permanently control or restrict your online activities via Sky Broadband where such activities may have a detrimental effect on other customers’ quality of service and it is reasonable for us to do so (e.g. sending “spam” Messages (see Condition 4(b)) or hosting a website).

      There is nothing stopping you using one of the many sites out there that will do this for you, 123reg.co.uk and 1&1 interent are just two such sites that spring to mind.
