How do I put my IIS server on the Internet?

I have a IIS server installed. It's ready to publish. How do I get it on the Internet? Http:localhost etc. works.
You'll need a couple of things. You need to get an IP address that is accessible from the public Internet--if you have an Internet connection, you probably already have this. If this is set up correctly, you'll be able to see your site from anywhere on the Internet just by entering the IP address. You'll also need to get a domain name, and associate that name with your IP address. A site like www.register.com is a good place to get a domain name.
