The simplest solution is to get a static IP address.  Alternatively you can set
up something a redirector.  Type "dynamic ip redirect" without the quotes into
Google search and you will have several choices of provider if that is what you
want.

You don't need a domain name if you don't want one.

You can log into your machine remotely using your static address (if you have
one) like this:

ssh 192.168.0.1

That will take you to 192.168.0.1.

You can also put an entry into your hosts file like this:

192.168.0.1	myremotecomputer

Now you can log into 192.168.0.1 by typing this:

ssh myremotecomputer

If you register a domain name, then you can log into your computer by typing
the domain name:

ssh example.com

Don't forget that if you're using a router you will have to forward port 22 to
your computer.
