What is Static IP? Do I need it?

A static IP address is a number (in the form of a dotted quad) that is assigned to a computer so that it becomes a permanent address on the Internet. 

MyRepublic Static IP add-on assigns you a fixed public IPv4 address. 

Due to the global shortage of IPv4 addresses, MyRepublic uses private dynamic IP, or dynamically assigned private IP addresses. This means that the IP address assigned to your location can change every now and then. 

Although this does not impact most of your internet experience such as streaming, surfing, P2P downloading or gaming, you may need a Static IP if you are looking to:

  • Host your own web servers
  • Use devices such as CCTV (surveillance cameras) and NAS
  • Get remote access to your home workstation
