This is not completely correct. You CAN put Web pages at an
FTP site and NOT have an HTTP server. (You can check out or for examples
of Web pages at FTP sites.) An HTTP server is a good
idea, of course, but it isn't mandatory.

The main issue is you need an area that is ACCESSIBLE FROM THE
OUTSIDE WORLD. Random files on random machines are not
accessible. But files stored on FTP or HTTP servers are.
