Response to: Fixed IP?

A fixed IP is good. If you only use your server for testing - not to host a real site - you can just type:
http"//yourIP to connect to your server. Just bookmark that link and you can use it easily.
If you want a system that routes to you server by typing a name, you need a service like described in the article. In that case: I use Open Domain Service. It works very good and it is free. Then you can type something like:
http://yourname.ods.org
Easier to remember... :) You find them at www.ods.org.
Subcribe and type in the settings your IP. You don't need the client program since your IP doesn't change.
I hope this helps you.
Grtz,
