What is a 'static IP'?

Each device connected to the internet has an “Internet Protocol” address. These are normally “dynamic”, meaning they change over time, or with each connection to a network. A static IP address is always the same, and allows you to access more advanced internet features, such as running a server, hosting a website or setting up a Virtual Private Network (VPN) so your employees can access your server remotely.

Most business broadband plans come with one or more static IPs, and you can generally pay extra to add more to your deal.
