After looking at http://www.portforward.com I realised that I don't have 2 DNS server addresses which I need. I get 1 address in numbers but the other addresses in random letters and numbers. This is what I get: fec0:0:0:0:ffff::1%1 fec0:0:0:0:ffff::2%1 fec0:0:0:0:ffff::3%1 I just want to know how I can get a second DNS server address for the Alternate DNS Server address setting while setting up my static IP address.

Check your ISPs homepages or call them and ask about the second DNS. What type of connection do you have? It sounds strange that your able to choose between dynamic/static IP yourself. Most ISPs charge you extra for a static IP.

Yeah ISPs usually charge. I can get ten static IPs for an extra £3 a month and I think that is about average around the world. Some ISPs give you static ones free, which makes it easier to host large servers as people will be able to put your IP in their favorites lists.
