gotta pay

moreover, you'll want to check with your ISP first... because they don't generally like people running servers (which increases bandwith usage)

because they don't like people running public servers, they usually shut-off access to common ports, making you require a more unique configuration...

hence the popularity of buying not only a domain name, but also hosting.
