Depends on your Domainname-Provider. Mine gives me the ability to create
an alias eg. foo.bar.com to foo.dyndns.org. CNAME or ALIAS im not fully
into this stuff. 
All I need to do is a little apache tweaking. Define a virtualhost entry
based on IP and use a placeholder in your config (best in a template
file). Everytime you reconnect, parse your config file for the
placeholder, replace it with your current ip and reload apache with the
resulting configfile. Works fine for me.
