Hi: I'm a developer/IT professional and I'm starting a small online business - need a static IP and having a lot of trouble finding a hosting service that supports the technology I am implementing for a reasonable price - everything geared to BIG business with BIG prices. Would be nice to be able to host via my home internal intranet, which runs through a linksys router to connect to my ISP (earthlink) and works with DHCP.
Sounds like DNS Update API is what I'm looking for. Any help or clarification would be appreciated.

As has been said in reply to many other people - only your ISP can provide you with a static IP. If that is really what you need then you have to get it from your ISP.
If however you simply need somewhere to host a web site then yes, DynDNS's services are probably what you want.
You'll need to register a domain and then use Custom DNS, with your update client configured to update a hostname in your domain. You'll want to review this question for information on port forwarding and testing.
You will also need to ensure your outbound email is routed through either your ISP or the DynDNS MailHop service - see this question.
