Create an external visibility for home domain

Sorry if this seems like a repetitive question on these boards:
I have built a domain at home using Windows Server 2008 R2 called domain.local.  I wish to make it that the Exchange Server 2010 which is contained within can have access from external addresses etc.  So basically I wish to make the .local domain visible to world by way of a .com domain name.
How can I go about doing this ?
My current DC has DNS and DHCP (for workstations only) running on it.
Thanks in advance for all assistance!

Leew ... thanks so much ... will get on that !  Again, thanks :)
in some occassions it may just be more convenient to use a remote app such as logmein or teamviewer to remotely connect to your home PC from a remote location.

otherwise everything leew has said is correct.
sometimes you can upgrade your internet connection with your ISP to have a fixed IP and to turn any port filtering at their end off - or you may need to consider changing ISPs

Dynamic DNS can be a pain even with - especially if your connection is a bit flakey and drops out often.

If you are using sbs instead of straight server and exchange then you should run the internet connection wizard after setting up your new name.
