What you want to do is use a dynamic DNS provider (dyndns.org, no-ip,
etc.) and use a CNAME record with the nameserver provider (everydns,
1) You register a domain name, example.com
2) You delegate authority over example.com to a nameserver provided by
whatever DNS provider you prefer.
3) You set up a hostname with a dynamic DNS provider, say example.no-ip.com
4) You go to your DNS provider's web site and add a CNAME record:
example.com. IN CNAME example.no-ip.com.
www.example.com. IN CNAME example.no-ip.com.
It should work out just fine. I'm assuming you have your Apache
configuration and everything down.
