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.

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.
