How to get a VPN static IP address?

An IP (Internet Protocol) address is a unique number to identify users on the Internet. In most cases, your IP given by ISP is not fixed, and this external IP address is not something you can change. A VPN service is a most used way to get a private IP address.

Use VPN to get a static IP address

Static IP address

A VPN static IP address provides you with an IP address that doesn't change, at a location of your choosing. And as you are using a VPN static IP address, your real IP is hidden. Static IP addresses are more reliable for Voice over Internet Protocol, and safer to host a gaming website. Firewalls, Access Control Lists and many other security features work in a more stable and predictable way with a static IP address. A static IP is unlikely blocked by websites or social medias, your facebook account will seldom be banned even using a VPN. If you use your computer as a server, a static IP would give your file server faster file uploads and downloads.

Dynamic IP address

A dynamic IP address is one that changes from time to time and isn't always the same. The biggest advantages of Dynamic IP Addressing are less security risk as the dynamic IPs keeps changing. When you connect to the Internet, your computer is leased one IP address from that pool for a number of hours. Dynamic IP Addressing can be used by families with several computers or by a small business owner who has a home office.

How to get a static IP?

No matter subscribe a shared IP package, dedicated Korea IP, or USA dedicated IP plan, all FlyVPN's subscriptions give you static IP addresses. You can find some servers show one IP, but some others have more than one IP addresses. Servers that have more than one IP address may assign you different IPs when you disconnect and later connect again. Therefore, there is no guarantee that you will get the same IP. If you want to get the same fixed IP each time you connect to the VPN, choose their servers with one IP, or subscribe dedicated IP plan.
