What is a Static IP, and what is it used for?
Having a 'Static Internet Protocol' or 'Static IP' address means that your IP address will be fixed (i.e. it does not change), compared to a standard dynamic IP address, which may change.
This can be useful for gaming, hosting, port forwarding, remote access, and a variety of advanced features of your home internet connection.
How much does a Static IP cost?
If you're on one of our Gamer plans, your Static IP is built into your plan. If for any reason you would like to move back to a dynamic, please contact us via Live Chat.
If you aren't on our Gamer Plans, a static IP will be a $8 per month add-on.
To add or remove, or change your plan to one with a Static IP, you can jump on our Live Chat and one of our team will take you through the process
The addition and removal of a Static IP can take up to one business day, and in most cases, is activated or removed within the hour.
