In this case don't set my-ip and register host address for dynamic
IPs, then instead of my-ip set my-hostname to your host address.
Whenever bot will need my-ip it'll try to resolve hostname and use
resulting IP.

If it's windows you could try to put computer name in my-hostname, but
I think above solution works better.
