You can make it a peer-to-peer website by installing either Beaker (available via Flathub) or IPFS.

Or you can setup a HTTP server like the Apache Web Server, setup port forwarding on your network router, adjust firewall rules on Fedora to allow outside connections, and spend a few hours configuring your server.

thanks ! I configured everything now (I think) - I have the apache running and everything works good on the computer, and I opened the port (80) in the router, so what is next ? Should I configure something specificly for the server - so it will work when its not loalhost ? I tried to search but I didn't really find anything useful about that

You could also run nginx web server. Be sure that your machine is accessible from outer world and not stopped by the router.
