Windows 7: Establish Remote Desktop Connection using Domain Name, rather than IP?

Establish Remote Desktop Connection using Domain Name, rather than IP?

I'm currently accessing my PC through Remote Desktop Connection from my college library to show my project team-mates the progress of the project. To get the IP address, which is dynamic, I always do some circus like
  1. I leave GMail account open here
  2. See the concurrent connections of GMail account in the library
  3. Then use that IP address to establish the connection

That's a pretty long way, right? RDC client in Windows gives domain names and sub-domain names as examples along with an IP address. So, is it possible to use a domain name - or a sub-domain - rather than IP address to establish a Remote Desktop Connection to my PC?

If yes, please help me how can I configure.

NOTE: I use some third-party service to point the domain to my computer with changing IP address. So you may assume that I have a static IP address for instructions.
