Having your own domain name is not incompatible with having a dynamic IP
address. I have both. I use to manage the mx records that
connect my own domain name to my dynamic IP address. The way it works is
that if you do a name lookup on you find my dynamic IP
address, but if you do a reverse lookup on the IP address, you get my
ISP information. It's a kind of hybrid.  But it allows me to advertise
my domain name for email purposes and for my web site, but it still
appears to recipients of my email as a dynamic IP address. For that
reason I continue to pass of my outgoing mail to my ISP instead of
sending it direct, although my incoming mail comes to me direct instead
of through my ISP.
