I used to use dyndns.org years ago but it is no longer free.

You can check out this list:

I've never used any of them so I can't vouch for any of them. Might provide a starting point though.

Not sure where you're located, but on most residential broadband internet service providers in the U.S. running a web-server on your connection is a TOS violation, and many providers block incoming requests to port 80 on their customers' connections. Not to mention you will need to leave that computer on 24/7.

Might be cheaper and a lot less headache to just get a regular domain name and a cheap hosting package somewhere. Should be able to swing it for less than $10/mo. I have a friend who runs a VBulletin board on a host for $5/mo I believe he told me (he recently had to change hosts over a censorship issue and found a new one that was also cheaper than what he'd been using).
