Can you set up a dynamic ip address through a comcast router?

As in

set it up so my dynamic address updates a webpage, and any traffic to that webpage gets directed to the updated address

I have Xfinity (formerly know as Comcast) checked all through the setting of the modem and I did not see anywhere that this can be done.

You may need to contact Xfinity to see if that can even be done.

Not even with an external site like Dynu?

well just to clarify further let me ask one more question just to determine if this is actually something that we would need to contact them about.

What Im trying to do is get my 3d printer video feed and access that from work. So I have my IP on a site. Let's say www.123.com I want anyone who goes to that page to get redirected to the updated site which is lets say www.456.com? except the www.456.com is/would have my current dynamic ip address So my comp must ping my current ip to the site so it knows where I am. the 123 address is just a static address that can be found outside my home network and just redirects. theres nothing on that site thus it allows you to type in the 123 address form anywhere, and get to my 3d printer via the re-direct to the 456 site.

Is that doable (if it makes sense) and is that something Id have t contact xfinity for?

Why just use software like TeamViewer or GoToMyPC to remotely access you home system.

Other wise yes contact the company that is hosting the 123 and see if they can put a redirect in for 456.

Or contact Comcast/Xfinty
