I have my regulated DSL line from Qwest. My ISP is Forethout.net, formerly
Interlink. They give me 2 IP address with no extra charge to my $20 a month
bill for the 256Kb up/down connection. Each IP after those 2 were $5.
At least that's what I think they qouted me a while back.
As far as registering the IP addresses, I've never done that. Right now the
domain names are the creative ones that Forthought assigned to them (
i148.denver.dsl.forethought.net is one).
