I run web server and I want to make my pages visible on the internet under MyDomainName.com.
What is the cheapest way?
I currently have service from an ISP. But it has dynamic IP. Companies like Verisign, register.com with whom I can register a domain name, do they offer dynamic DNS services?
If they dont, and if I register domain name from someone and buy dynamic DNS service from someone else, (since my actual IP is with the company that is offering dynamic DNS service) every hit to my site is routed thru this company and is a performance overhead?
Can you suggest a good company that offer these kinds of services at a reasonable price?
Thanks.

I know of one place that will host your site for free... and the good thing is that it supports Java Servlets and JSP among other things....
www.mycgiserver.com
I know its late but I hope this helps

The cheapest way is to register your domain with a cheap registration service (try dotster) and then set up an account with a cheap provider (try digitalspace.net).

For html, asp i think www.brinkster.com is the best free option, though you will get a slash ('/')only. I am using www20.brinkster.com/ashik75 ....

Anyone who offers unlimited space and unlimited bandwidth for $1.50 per month is a liar. Why don't you call them and tell them that you are from Yahoo! and you want to take them up on their $1.50 offer to mirror yahoo.com.
