IP Addressing Explained
- 09-09-2009 3:21 PM
Static means the IP address never changes as long as you stay with the same provider or same server.
Dynamic means the IP address can change from time-to-time.
Public means the IP address can be visited from any computer in the world.
Private means the IP address can only be used by those on the same network.
Shared means other people use your IP address for their connection or sites.
Dedicated means no one else uses your IP address for their connection or sites.
Cyberlynk always provides static, public IPs on our servers. We offer shared by default, and dedicated by request.
We do not provide a dedicated IP address for your personal computer or network. For that, please contact your internet service provider.
