Being able to host a website or not really depends on what is given by your ISP.  First you will need to find out if your ISP has given you an account with a public IP address or not.  Due to limited ip addresses some ISP probably will give you a NATed ip address.  

If you are given a public IP then it may still be possible to host your website using Dynamic DNS.  To check whether you are given a public IP or NATed private ip, you will need to login to your router and look at the assigned ip address.

After you determine that and if it is a public ip address then you can look at the below for further configuration on DDNS.
