I've been running them similar to this since about 2000! :-) I've never been hacked though I have always used Linux for this. Linux is much more secure than Windows and to be honest, I would never run a Windows server against my will. :-)

You can go with dynamic! :-) You won't need a static IP address unless you really need one. Don't worry though ... you'll know when you need one! Good luck!
