As far as I'm aware, all you need to pay for is registration of a domain=20
with someone like 123-reg.co.uk (only preferred because they're local=20
and I use them myself, no affiliation) which provides a control panel=20
and the like. For a .uk it's about =A36 summat for 2 years, which comes=20
well within your =A350.

Then you can fiddle around with DNS to point it at your IP, and the rest=20
is up to you, and because it's Linux that should cost you no more. Bingo!
