I hear all the cool kids use MQTT these days. If you happen to have an OpenWRT-based router, like I have, then it's likely to be powered-on 24/7 anyways and makes for a perfectly valid server for this stuff -- I have several servers running on mine, for example; I can pull the plug on everything else on my network, power off my PC and all that, but all the ESP8266's, for example, will continue to work fine and supply their data and be accessible as long as the router is powered-on. If the server-software you need isn't already available for OpenWRT it's not that terrible much work to compile it yourself or ask on #openwrt if someone could be so kind as to do it for you, or at least help you with it.
