    yep its very possible, even if you have a dynamic ip address. Check dyndns.org. If you have a static ip address, even better!

    If you want something really secure, then use Slack, Debian, Adamantix or OpenBSD. Personally I prefer Slack... It is suitable for anything. It is made for security and stability. Unlike some other distros

    I'd prefer Fedora or RHEL.

    Fedora is free to get, RHEL may be copied under GPL

    In both cases, easy to install and easy to setup.

    I have heard some pretty good things about Slackware as a server distro although I have never tried it. I personally use Suse (as a desktop) but I would say go with Slackware or Debian.
