I change my public ip address on a monthly basis. I guess I'm just paranoid that way. Its really easy to do if you have a router and a cable modem. Much more difficult to do if you have a combo modem/router device. Power off your cable modem. Log into the router and change its mac address (just change a single digit, a 1 to a 2, or a B to a C, etc). Now power off the router. Power on the modem. Wait 30 seconds. Power on the router. It will now have a new public ip address.
This works because the ISP's DHCP server see's a new mac address connecting to it, assumes you have plugged in a different device, and since no two devices can have the same ip address, will issue a new one to the router.
If you restart your modem/gateway, it will often get a new IP address from your ISP.
However, if you have AT&T U-verse, even though you most likely have a dynamic IP, it won't change.
We've had AT&T U-Verse for nearly 4 years and our IP never changed until a couple of months ago when we upgraded Internet speeds and got a new gateway.
I think you already got enough suggestion. In my point of view using a VPN is a permanent solution of this problem. With a VPN you will get these benefits.

I am using HIDE-MY-IP. It effective and cheap.
They will not change it, it is issued by their DHCP servers. And if you have not messed with your router settings it should block ddos attacks anyway.
Your ISP has to do it I'm afraid. Also, you have little to worry about from a DDoS attack as an end user.
