You can connect to the server from your computer using IP address 127.0.0.1.
For people to connect to you from other computers, you need to buy a dedicated IP address from your Internet provider. When you get the IP address, turn off the server, open the server.properties file in the folder containing your server, and at the end of the file add the line server-ip=YOUR_IP (replace YOUR_IP with your IP address).
