If you have a domain, I think you need to look into something like
zoneedit.com: the dyndns and no-ip,org solutions, at least for free,
don't cover domains outside their own namespace. With zoneedit you can
have up to 5 domains for free. To keep them in sync with your dynamic
host, you could use zoneclient.py (http://zoneclient.sourceforge.net/).
It's worked fine for me so far (touch simulated woodgrain).
