It sounds like your eMac is connected to the internet with a static IP address, which would allow the kind of web publishing described in this article. Those of us with dynamic IP addresses (I use PPPoE DSL) need to use some kind of host tracking service like those offered by dyndns.org or dhs.org. This can be accomplished by using a client application on the server that talks with their servers, then your domain name would be something like "myemac.dyndns.org", which would resolve through their servers to your computer with a dynamic IP address. Asante also makes broadband routers that support this (the FR1004 series) -- handy for sharing your broadband connection with your home network, and providing dynamic host resolution as well.
