Can IIS server automatically update IP addresses?

In a home network I installed with IIS, I can access index.html from other PCs. However, my home network accesses the Internet via TDSL. That means I get a new IP address every 24 hours and IIS Server doesn't identify the new IP. Is there a way to get the IIS server to update the IP address?
There are two ways to solve your problem: purchase a static IP address from your ISP, or configure your DNS address to automatically update when your IP address changes. You probably will want to use dynamic DNS. A quick search for the phrase "dynamic dns" on Google turns up dozens of Web sites that will provide this service for you. Some charge a fee, others are free. This Web site offers an excellent overview of the topic and a reasonably up-to-date list of providers: http://www.technopagan.org/dynamic/
