If you have a spare domain that you can use for technical purposes only (i.e., not for web sites, emails , ...) that would be ideal. You can then create a subdomain, e.g. server1 (-> and point its DNS record to your router's public IP address.

I need some infos about your router:
- LAN IP address, maybe also netmask and broadcast, if available.
- The IP address range your DHCP server on the router uses.
You can find the details in the router's web frontend.
