I am missing something conceptually.

My website is hosted at homestead.com, and the domain name is also registered there. My package supports three domain names.  Does this have any relationship to dynamic dns.  My ISP is charging me for a static IP address which is required for me to view my security cameras remotely.

Does hosting at homestead help me in any way with this challenge?

Unfortunately we can't help with this. You are paying for an IP address that does not change. That is why you are able to check the cameras within your house. Dynamic IPs mean when you connect, the ISP server assigns you a public IP address. This may or may not be the same address you had yesterday, or last week. If your public IP has changed, then you will not be able to view your cameras from outside of your home.
