This is dynamic DNS which causes problems:
  - High load on DNS servers due to short TTL (prevent caching)
  - Fast running serial numbers (SOA) for secondaries.
  - Missing secondaries (even worse).

So if you really need a static IP, you can get it from your ISP.
BTW: IP addresses can not be owned.
