The only way to get a static IP address is from your ISP. If you really need a static IP and your ISP cannot provide one then you need a different ISP.

Why do you need a static IP address? Depending on the answer there may be other alternatives that solve your problem.

For dynamic IPs you can set up a dynamic DNS in your router to get a static name:

My ISP says that usually a static IP is needed for setting up an Internet/Domain Server. Some Web sites even publish that IP number on one of their pages.

Next advice was:

Go to your domain in godaddy control center. Look for "Forwarding" section and just enter your no-ip address in forwarding section

Set yourself up with a dynamic DNS provider like Free Dynamic DNS - No-IP.com - Managed DNS Services then from your godaddy dns panel setup a cname that points to your noip address.
