If you don't want to purchase a domain name, you can use a service like
DynDNS to use a free hostname for you isp assigned ip address. See their
website for details:

If you go this route, you'll probably want to install something like the
ddclient package to periodically update your ip address with DynDNS.

Don't forget, you'll also need to make sure that your router is configured
to forward ftp to your server (TCP 20 & 21).
