The default port that minecraft uses is 25565. Make sure to log into your router (on most networks ip address 192.168.1.1). Once in there forward that above port to whatever machine ip address your server will be running on. I highly recommend assigning that computer a static ip address on your network. Once your forwarding is taken care of run your minecraft server. Then from another computer start the minecraft game client and under multiplayer input your dyndns given name (yourname.dyndns.info for example). Then hit the go button and after a terrain download you should be playing!

I have the same exact question but the answer above didn't give anywhere near enough detail. If anyone uses their Dyndns IP to host a Minecraft server, I'm sure it would be greatly appreciated by me and many others to make a step by step guide on this topic. Thanks

You didn't get an IP from here, you get your IP from your ISP. The DynDNS services give you a hostname that resolves to your ISP provided IP address.

@skiunitkid - please ask your own question.
That said, it answered the question asked. DynDNS.com does not give out IP addresses, that is what the ISP does. DynDNS has a service that provides a hostname that can then resolve to your ISP allocated address.
Guides on port forwarding and information on running a Minecraft server were linked to. If you take the time to follow these links then they should help you. If it doesn't then either ask your own question here (for problems with port forwarding) or on the Minecraft forums (for problems setting up a Minecraft server).
