Doesn't have to be. Take a look at http://www.dyndns.org. They provide 
free scripts that report your dynamically assigned IP back to 
dyndns.org, which then updates its DNS records. I use them and it works 
fine. I assume other dynamic IP hosting services work in a similar manner.

Of course, this is not a good idea for a production server that has to 
be up 24X7 since there could be a delay when reporting the new IP, but 
for development work, it will do the job.
