Redirect VPS Domain/static IP to dynamic Dial-Up IP


got a VPS and for testing purposes a homeserver with apache running.
what two tools would i need to redirect my static ip to my dynamic one?

the traffic shall all go through the dynamic one.
i've got a domain name registered with the VPS also. nameservers are configured.

is there any setup required on my local (dynamic ip) apache settings for using the name? and if i stop the service, will it still work?
do i have to setup a webserver on the VPS for it? none running yet.

thx in advance!

Dynamic DNS

You can use a free service like and setup a daemon on your server to update them when your dynamic ip changes. Be clear, you can't run more than one website through DYNDNS because the first virtual host in your apache config will be the default for the dynamic dns. You can load multiple websites in directories though.
