You'll need to contact your ISP and obtain a Static IP. Typically it's around 2-6 bucks extra a month though.

You could also use a service like dyn-dns.

Some routers can be configured to update with dyndns so a domain name always redirects to your server
fore example creepa.dyndns-server.com always redirects to my minecraft server no matter what the ip is, even though its dynamic.

Check your router setting and see if they have a dynamic dns section
