Apache to host my own website

I have installed Apache, php and mysql. I also created a website and can display it when i am on my box. How can i make the website available to the internet? Do i need pay for an static ip address first?

Re: Apache to host my own website

You need to open port 80 (WWW) in your computer firewall and also do port forwarding (NAT) for your computer's ip address on port 80 in your router. You don't need a static ip if your router can handle dynamic dns (dyndns.org for example) - you just need to register a free account and pick whatever domain name you want.
these command lines are like casino slot machines, every time I input commands NOTHING HAPPENS
