A Registered domain name and static ip address is two different things.
You can only get a static ip address from your ISP.

Your current registered domain name can be pointed at the static ip address
you purchase from your ISP.

Subject: clarification before buying a internet static IP address

I need from you advice before doign things.

Up to now, I have a home web server using free DynamicDNS service of
With it, I can access directly to my home web server from ouside through

Now for some reason, I not want to use DynamicDNS service anymore.
So I tend to buy a staticDNS from domain reseller.
Suppose that I only buyed a domain with internet static IP
address :, not buyed hosting service from that domain reseller,
can I be able to set up my own DNS server (in my home PC server) so that
I can
browse directly to my home web server by typing
into address bar of firefox, opera?

i meaned, in other words, in order to host one website so that in can be
all over the world, I have no way but must use external hosting service?
Sorry for my bad English
