Hosting on my own computer

Hello!

I have just created two resources that can be accessed locally (API "hosted" by IIS and website "hosted" by nodejs with express and pm2). Both have own ports and it works fine. Now I would like to show it to the world :)
I have found some solutions like WAMP Server or FileZilla, but unfortunately, they allow me to share index.html file and that is all. A perfect solution in my case would just make those two ports visible for other computers worldwide. I created firewall rule for my two ports and access them using
http://{publicIP}: Port/apiRoute
but it does not work :(

If someone would just tell what to look for I would truly appreciate it.

API yes, website no. But I can do it in a flash. I am thinking about just putting both on some "as a service" stuff like AWS or Azure, to make it easier to deploy. The problem is it seems expensive for such a small system (20 users). What do you think?

I've used Digital Ocean for small deployments like this, probably cost you around $5/mo

Could I ask you how did you achieve $5 per month? I have mySQL database, react webApp and few API's in .NET core. Is it ok to store everything on VPS or it would be cheaper if I split everything and use database as a service, webhisting plus API on kubertenes, or something like this?
