Besides needing to watch out for the IP address changes that will inevitably take place - you may want to consult your ISP's terms of service page to make sure that you CAN place a server behind the cable modem. There are several cable providers that DO NOT allow you to have a server on their network. Almost all cable providers have an area that they refer to as "acceptable bandwidth usage" if you exceed this usage your service will be completely suspended and it may take an act of God to have things reactivated - so be careful with what you serve.

Any of the services out there that offer dynamic DNS services (you will still have to decide which to use) will be essential in your serving - but make sure that you watch what you are getting in to and Good Luck!
