$10.00 / month

*A static IP address, or fixed IP address, is an IP address that never changes. Not everyone needs a static IP address, but knowing how they differ from dynamic IP addresses can help you understand whether you should use a static IP address.

Here are some example situations for when you might need a static IP address:

  • Setting up a home file server
  • Adding a second router to a network
  • Enabling access to a computer when away from home/work
  • Forwarding ports to certain devices
  • Sharing a printer over a network
  • Connecting to an IP camera when away from home

For most users who use their internet connection for web browsing, streaming, etc. A Static IP address is not necessary.
