Low bandwidth site. Easy to setup web services?
Also, what about VPN?
Why would you want to set up a server on a DSL connection? That's just an awful idea. Look into getting a web host- it's cheaper, your uptime will be five 9's, and you won't need to worry nearly as much about security.
If you're going to host off of a DSL connection with a dynamic IP and are looking for a free solution, I highly recommend using DynDNS. Check it out, it will be a big help. You could host a basic webpage from any unix/linux box running Apache, really, but SL server should do perfectly fine as well. I would imagine you could probably set up an mail server using this as well, but I've never tried that.

If it's something that you're willing to host off a dsl connection - a free web host would be more than enough most likely. Send me a PM and I'll set you up with a free account on one of my servers.
If you want to do it because you want to play around with a webserver, then that's a different story.
Regular OS X can serve web site. Don't need SL Server just to serve web sites.
Problem with DSL is that it's too slow for most people who are used to fast web server speeds.
I bet this is just for a pet project. It's always fun to experiment.
I host a few websites from home with a cable connection. I use zoneedit for my dns and the client dnsupdate for OSX. It is fairly easy to setup.
