Very well, There a lot of resources out there. Yours is a very generic request. Best thing to do is pick up a book for webhosting on ubuntu.

Or have some patience and look here:

What you are looking for:
Apache2 to inetd Configuration. (Exposing your webserver to web)
Configuring LAMP (Dynamic Sites)
Dynamic DNS Hosting (To be able to map your IP addresses to NameServers)
Domain Hosting with DNS Control (To be able to map a DOMAN name to the NameServers from previous step)

I can only show you the door, You have to walk through it!

You need to register a domain name, a free place to do this is www.dyndns.com.
Then you need to install something like Webmin (check Synaptic) to manage your PHP and MySQL servers.
Then make sure you've forwarded port 80 on your router so that you can access it outside your network and that's it.

If you want a nice looking environment for people to view when they visit, install Joomla or Wordpress, it'll set up a nice website for you in a few clicks. I just did all this last night.

I might have a shot at this. Might be better than using Weebly.

EDIT: Decided not to. Need to be a bit more experienced for it.
