A static IP address, a permanent address on the Internet, enables an IP holder to host Web sites and e-mail servers, conduct webcasts, and connect with other Internet users via VPN. Thus, if none of the above applies to your situation, you don't need a static IP address. A dynamic IP address is sufficient if you are not referring your public ip on any of the services. You can be able to host websites with no need for static IPs by using dynamic dns updation tools & services. for eg. dyndns.org.
