With current operating systems you can specify a static IP address that
remains for the most part persistent.

I would recommend setting up this device to work well within the space's
network, possibly writing a nice interface for it and some sort of
documentation on how to use it, before request a subdomain and a port
forwarding out to the real world.

Then again I am not the person to talk to about the domain which exists
only in a museum in Vienna.
