Types of IP addresses


Dynamic IP Address

An IP address that is not static and could change at any time. This IP address is issued to you from a pool of IP addresses allocated by your ISP or DHCP Server. This is for a large number of customers that do not require the same IP Address all the time for a variety of reasons. Your computer will automatically get this number as it logs on to the network and saves you the trouble of having to know details regarding the specific network configurations. This number can be assigned to anyone using a dial-up connection, Wireless and High Speed Internet connections.

Static IP Address

An IP address that is fixed and never changes. some ISP’s will provide a static IP address, normally packages aimed at business customers.
