1: You could ask your local router for the current value of your public IP address, and then you could send them an email or an Instant Message or you could call them on the telephone, repeating the process every time your ISP changes your IP address. Or,

2: You could pay a substantial, extra monthly fee to your ISP to induce them to assign a - Static IP address - to your network, which you could publish just once. Or,

3: You could take advantage of the Internet's "Dynamic Domain Name System" - ( DDNS ) - to give your network an unchanging - "domain name" - on the worldwide Internet, which you could then publish just once.
