Do I need ArcGIS server to host my data to my website? Or can I use ArcGIS online? I don't have ArcGIS server but I do have access to ArcGIS online. If possible if would be great to just have the files hosted on my web-server.
I think your best option is to create each raster dataset as a Tiled Service that's hosted in ArcGIS Online. Here is a document that discusses how to do this:
Publish a Tiled Service to ArcGIS Online w/o ArcGIS for Server or Utilizing Your Credits

Sorry about that! Was somehow brought this page but looks like a wonderful community!
Can you elaborate a little more when you state you are trying to host your data to your website? Would you be able to provide an example of what you are trying to achieve?
I have a bunch of raster data-sets I created and some other data formats in my database that I plan on integrating into my website http://www.meta-gis.org/. Through ArGIS online I am given limited options and the solution seems to install ArcGIS Server "Not sure if it's included in my student licence or if it is free havent foudn out yet, I'd have to check." or if ArcGIS online hosts my data as a service that I can reference in my code to have it display. I rather host it myself being that ArcGIS online has rather limited options on creating feature layers and such. Or if there are any open-source alternatives?
As Jake mentioned, it would be helpful to know a few more specifics, but in general "yes" this should be possible assuming
If you publish a service and look at the Proprties page, you can find the URL link in the lower-right corner
and copy the path which will look something like this
or view the REST endpoint, just as you would if using ArcGIS Server services. See
