    Hello there!

    I ordered a static IP address from my webserver hoster, and it just finished propagating it so it's in use now. But the question is, since it's now on my webserver's static IP address, is there a way to attach that IP address to this, my, computer that if I start hosting a game server that I can get a static IP address to this computer and with that way from all over the world?

    Should I contact to gameserver provider to ask some advice is there any possibility to make the server hosting -file to communicate with the webserver that it could get the static IP address from there and use it on itself? Or should I contact to the manufacturer, where I got the static IP address? At this moment, it's my webserver hoster as well...?

    Thanks for your help!

    You can get a static IP from your ISP (depends on the ISP), then you can do as you described.

    But if you just want to host a game server on your PC you don't need a static IP.
