You do not. You point your DOMAIN to the IP - different direction. –  TomTom Dec 10 '12 at 9:13

Depending on your domain registrar this could be easily done.

They could offer the possibility to run a client on your homeserver that updates DNS A entry each hour. I know that OVH offers this feature.

I think you could also use DynamicDNS services (dyn.com, no-ip.com).

Otherwise, you'd need to use bash script with your DNS service, that you'd update…
