Talk to your Internet provider. Chances are, you are setup for a dynamic IP address, so you can not get a statis IP address. Static IP address accounts are usually more expensive. Also, many ISPs have strict requirements about running your own web server on their networks.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, Cemical.

In addition, if your ISP will allow you to run an HTTP server, search for "dynamic DNS" and you'll find a workaround for the dynamic IP issue you are having.
