What I currently do, is have my domain registered via with
the dns pointing to

At I have my domain name and aliases setup.

On my computer (or in this case, the server one), I have ddclient that
runs and checks for an IP every so often and reports it to
And then I run a little program called dnsmasq to help resolve local
machines to run without having to resolve all the time and being slow.

Then I just setup my server machine to accept emails, web, ftp, etc.
And I run a linksys router between my cable modem and my computers.

Might not be the best way, but I basically pay per year for domain name
and dyndns service, maybe $30/year or so, give or take a few.  But it
works and lets me keep on top of administering and not having to change
my emails all the time.
