Hi,
Is there a way to define a fixed name to the Tomcat server, instead of using a deferent IP Address every time (http://212.179.248.3:8080/MyWeb/useRegistration.jsp) ?
I would like to simply write my server name (http://rcy:8080/MyWeb/useRegistration.jsp) and then see my application through the internet.

Or is the only way to get a fixed IP Address is to pay´┐Ż

This is really a DNS question but there are two possible ways. The first is as you alluded to - get a static IP address from your ISP and/or get web account with a static IP address. You can have many names on this single IP address but the IP address will not change periodically.

If your ISP is like most you have a DHCP assigned address meaning that it can change periodically. If you want to map a name to this changing address, you will need something that updates a DNS server somewhere with your current IP address. I found this information to help when searching Google for "dynamic dns".
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
