AT&T static IP on home basic DSL plan.

I apologize if this has already been asked.

I have the AT&T Basic DSL plan with one dynamic IP.

I was wondering if I could get a static IP for this plan without upgrading to a business plan (i found it says its possible) and if it is possible what is the price of the static IP?

They answer and give the price.

However the IP didn't change for over 2 years here. Go figure how that would be different than a static IP.

Can you share why you need such?

I run IRC servers and other servers that a dynamic ip makes it kind of hard to do. (i Use DynDNS but i fail at setting up the update clients)

You would still need DynDNS. Here's why.

In reply to: reason:

While you can pay for the IP you can't get them to enter that IP into the world's DNS (servers) for a price that you could live with.

So after you have explored this I bet you won't buy it but go back to DynDNS.

Id plan on buying a domain.

So how...

In reply to: after I get teh static IP...

Will you get that domain entered so it points at your IP?

Static IP = some money.

Static IP that gets an DNS record = lots more money.

Just make the call.
