You will NOT get a static IP adress, unless your ISP assigns one to you.

Once you have a static IP, you need a DNS server to handle your domain entry. Infact you need two DNS servers, on different subnets preferably. Do you have a second site to place the second DNS?
------
Or you could stick with dynamic IP, and use a service such as www.dyndns.com to handle the resolver. If you go with this way, all you have to do is register with dyndns ($50/year). Then point your internic entry to the DNS that dyndns assigns you.

Then you are all set, now all traffic to *.yourdomain.com will be directed to your machine.

I will explain it, but details will be short.  You have to have a static ip address, and you need to have the domain name registered to point to that ip address.  Then you need to set up apache web server (see http://www.apache.org) on your machine.  Telnet is automatic, but you have to specify user accounts.  FTP will also work, but you need to speceify the users and put them in an ftp group.
