josh's answer is correct here. also, you may want to monitor your own
ip-address a while before order a static-ip from your provider. there
exists the possibility that the ip theyre already furnishing may be one
that does not get rotated. that was the case with the service provider i
was using- they didnt make any changes to my account other than charging an
additional fee!
