Every device which uses the internet connection will have an IP Address (say 192.168.0.1). These devices will either acquire the IP Address from the router they are using or from the Internet services provider. The IP Addresses which will be received from the router will be the Private IP Address. The IP Address which will be provided by the Internet Services provider will be the Public IP Address. These IP Addresses are further Classified into Static or Dynamic IP Addresses. In this article, we will talk about the details of the Static IP Address.

Static IP Address Details

The Static IP Addresses can be defined as the permanent IP Address. This IP Address will not change over time. The administrator of the network can easily assign the static IP Address to the device connected within a Home network. The static IP Addresses can also be acquired by the devices from the router if the router is not using the DHCP model.

Why do we use Static IP Addresses?

Suppose that a printer or copier is connected to a home network & uses a dynamic IP Address then it will be difficult to access this device remotely. This type of IP Address is also used in hosting a website. The Static IP Addresses are also used to connect within a remote access program.

Disadvantages of Static IP Addresses

  • There are more chances of IP Address conflict.
  • Can be easy targets for hackers.
  • Requires more efforts to assign an IP Address to any device.
