I have yet to set up the service yet, but in essence I would, for now, just like to be able to access the telemetry data from the internet.
"The internet" is not a place where you can store data. A server is, with appropriate scripts to get the data from the httpd daemon and put it somewhere and to get the data from somewhere and create a web page that is served up by the httpd daemon.
So, I think you have the cart before the horse.
You need to stand up the server first so you have some place to store the data. Then, you can write the scripts to save and retrieve the data (I like PHP for that, with MySQL to store the data). Then, you can write the client apps to get the data to the server and to get the data from the server.
