There are a wide variety of options that you can utilize to make your custom maps and mods available to the masses. You can upload them to sites dedicated to gaming, get a server to place it in their rotation, or you can host it yourself.

This is a list of sites where you can upload content to.

General hosting

Though YouSendIt let you upload huge files (1GB), they only host your file for a week.

Rapidshare's downside is on the downloader's side, Lots of ads and waiting...

Rapidshare's sister site.
