I've no idea what NO-IP is. You could sign up for dynamic DNS, though this is where my knowledge gets sketchy...

NO-IP is a dynamic DNS.

You don't have settings in your router to have a static IP? I know I do.

Well, now that I look, there is... but I have a stupid question. What do I put in for the IP? Just make one up?
Or can I put my no-ip address in there or what?

I say use the current IP that you have, jus' check it so that it is static.

Ok, so I just read this article, and I think it cleared up a couple things for me...

So if I'm understanding this all right, I need to run NO-IP DUC on my server PC. Then in my router, I need to forward port 80 to that IP. Then I should be able to give out that IP and people will be able to access whatever's on the server?

Edit: Even when using NO-IP, my IP stays the same. What do?

You'll only have a static IP if you ISP gives you one, I think. Perhaps you should speak to them, see if they have a "professional" level service or something. You know, higher upload speeds, that sort of thing. And static IPs.

best way is to go to the isp front desk, slip a 100 dollar bill and request for special service

Well even if I get a static IP for my router (I do have the option to change it myself, and did so already), don't I need to have an IP specific to my server PC?
