Server IP Questions

Post by ToxicSkylinesMH10 » Fri Oct 14, 2011 10:06 pm

Hey guys,

Toxic here :)

Ive got a few questions about IP's and the Server

Alright, so rather recently, Ive successfully started my own server.
I have my DYN DNS account all set up and everything works fine.

However, I find that because I dont have a certain type of IP address, I need to go on to DynDns.com and manually update it.

Is there any way to make it so that its a permanent IP address? Because, I find this daily process a bit tedious.

And also, Ive been hearing about a static IP, which, from what Ive read, is a permanent IP.

So if anyone could help me out and possibly even show me how to do this, I would be very happy :)

Not sure about setting a permenant IP however there is a program called DynDns updater which synchronises your location IP with the DynDns address so you don't have to keep on going on the site and manually change it as this program will do it automatically for you everytime your IP changes.
