You could use one of the many websites that you pay for them to host them to host the server, complete with many Bukkit plugins, ServerCraft being one. But if you want to host a server, and start it out from scratch, you could go to the top link in "related links" and download the "Multiplayer Beta Server" at the bottom of the page. It may help to follow a guide as to setting up the server on YouTube.
