Static Ip Address

static ip address

A Static IP Address is an IP Address whose numbers represent a permanent address on the Web. When the Internet was initially established, only a finite number of IP addresses were created. Because the supply has now been exhausted, Internet service providers remedy the problem by temporarily assigning IP addresses from a pool of IP addresses. This temporary IP address is known as a Dynamic IP Address.
