Get a static IP address?

Or get a port forwarding router/firewall that connects to the Internet, 
and forwards connections to port 80 to your server running Apache.  That 
machine would have to be smart enough to rebuild the forwarding rules 
every time your IP changed (most broad band routers can do this), but 
you'll also need something that can connect to dyndns and update your 
record automatically.  A Linux or BSD box acting as a router would be 
able to do this with any problem.
