Unless you are absolutely adamant that you, yourself will be the
sysadmin for this "family web site" I would simply recommend that you
have a web site hosted somewhere.

What do you really want to do:

1) put up a web site, or 

2) manage a server?

The two projects are almost mutually exclusive, really; there are only
24 hours in any day that I've ever seen.

You mentioned "easiest" and "securely" in the same sentence.

I would say: pick one, or the other.

As far as a hosting company, there are millions.

I use Feature Price (http://www.featureprice.com)

Not the cheapest, but IMHO this is not a area where you want "cheap".
