Is this a business computer or a home computer?

If you have a static ip you can point it directly to it through your advanced setting for whereever you purchased the domain.

I have also used everydns.net for doing this for me in the past also.

If you don't have a static ip there are some tools out there for dynamic ones like zoneedit.com
