Ideally you'd buy another domain, a "technical" domain that you don't use for web hosting and email, but only for naming your servers. You'd use that one for ISPConfig.

Does this mean that anyone with that URL can access my server
If points to your public IP address and your router forwards port 8080 to your ISPConfig server, then yes.

Most dynamic IPs are blacklisted nowadays which means you cannot send from them. But you can relay through another mail server:
