Every machine on the Internet has a unique identifying number, called an IP address. Usually your ISP assigns you a different IP address (or Dynamic IP), each time you use the internet. A static IP address is unique to every client.
Why would you need it?
Are Dynamic IPs a thorn in your side? Does your network hardware require a static IP? Keep your hardware happy. Static IPs give you MORE OPTIONS, MORE POWER, and MORE CONTROL of your network infrastructure!
Whether it is setting up your own server, managing your own SMTP, improving remote access to your current network configuration, Static IP Addresses allow you greater flexibility to set-up your network to WORK for you.
