I own 3 domain names with the same name, each ending in .com , .net, .eu
We want to host an ASP.NET website which will be accessible for all 3 domain names.
What should we need from the Hoster Company to achieve this?
Is a static IP needed for the server hosting the site, to forward the DNS for each domain?

Every (serious) hosting company has servers with static IP addresses. For all three domains, you'll have to set up Primary and Secondary DNS servers in their registrars. Your hosting company should provide that information (about their DNS servers). When
you're done with the DNS configuration, the best solution would be to add Host Headers for all three of your domains in IIS configuration of your website. In that case, everything should work OK.
If you're using a shared hosting environment and you can't get access to the IIS configuration, you should contact your hosting provider's customer service so they could manually add those host headers to IIS.
Alternate (and not a really good) solution would be to set up redirects - so, for example, your .net and .eu domains have dummy pages that redirect automatically to .com.

Just buy a hosting space from hosting provider like Godaddy.com and host you application. Use domain forwarding service to map the other domain you have. are else map the path of the application directlly to the domain.

Any host will have a static IP. And as long as DNS forwards all sites to the same IP, there's nothing you need to do that's special.

You have to make sure that hosting company will allow you to point more than one domain to your site (most do but NOT all shared plans allow this).
