Ask your ISP. It's basically the only sure-fire way. They may charge you for it.
Alternatively, you could use a dynamic DNS service. You give people a domain name, like hellhole.dyndns.org, and you have a program on your PC that updates the IP address tied to hellhole.dyndns.org automatically. People will just connect to hellhole.dyndns.org and will always be connected to the correct IP.

If you're talking about your IP that you give to all your friends, there isn't much you can do to make your IP static other than paying extra for a static IP.

Instead, try using a Dynamic DNS service so you can give out a url instead of an IP.

There's a few free services out there. I used to use dyndns.org but I don't see a free option on their site anymore.

I think no-ip provides free dynamic dns services. I used to use it for something a few years ago.

I'm not sure if it's changed since.

Yea, no-ip should work, I used a free account I made a few years ago, and I have a local copy of my web site redirected via it.

I have a free domain name through dyndns, but I got it years ago so maybe they're no longer offering new free ones.

Did you guys suddenly forget what you're talking about?

Find your local area connection, go into properties, highlight IPV4, hit properties again, and you can create your own static IP there. Once assigned (google will get you a full tutorial on this mattter), you can forward ports that minecraft needs for running the server.

You know you can't just "create" a static IP and get online with it?

He could assign his current dynamic IP as his static IP, and it likely will work... for a little while. If he wanted things to be persistent he would need to contact his ISP and likely upgrade his plan to include static IPs.

You're thinking Intranet, not Internet.
Having a manually assigned IP from your PC is not the same thing as having a Static IP.

Even if TC sets his IP manually every time his modems lease expires and requests a new IP from his ISP he will have to get his new IP and paste it into a chat for his friends.
