I don't know the situation in your country. But here in germany you can
rent a lowend dedicated server for about 40 $/month. With static IP and
mostly with one or more domain-names.
With such a server you can do all what you want without the problems
coming from the dynamic IP.
Perhaps that'll be an alternative for you.
