An IP address is a logical address for the physical location of
computer. Every other computer in the Internet has to know
how to read your host
soley by your IP address. So you need a ISP
to give you an routeable IP address.
Those addresses can not be
selled, like street names. Please ask your ISP (you
call to read
this comment) how to get a static address.
