Introduction to Static IP

Static IP is perfect for business owners who travel but still need to access their business systems. As the name suggests, Static IP provides a web address that is fixed at one destination – it does not change, even when you access your computer from another location.

What is Static IP?

Static IP is a more reliable way to use voice and video conferencing, operate private networks and run your security camera system. It is also cost effective for network administrators to control network connections and is an easy, seamless system for hosting servers, whether it is an email server, an application server or File Transfer Protocol (FTP).

You can host and run your own business email, content, applications and stay in touch with colleagues on the same system, no matter where you are in the world.

For those who wish to work remotely, staff can access content via their home computers and business travellers can check in as if they were operating from the office.

How Will Static IP Benefit My Business?

Work Anywhere

  • Set up a dynamic working system for staff: whether they work from home or are away on business, everyone is on the same system

Share Large Files Across Locations

  • Instead of setting up a data centre, use FTP to share big files across remote destinations

Run Video and Voice Conferencing Off One Address

  • VOIP and video operate better on a Static IP address
  • Security cameras can also be operated remotely

More About Static IP

Although you can set a connection up regardless of what type of IP address you have, you need a fixed address to maintain it otherwise the program will no longer be able to find your computer when your device refreshes its dynamic address. (Dynamic addresses run through your device, while a static IP answers to a location).

With a static IP address you can access your computer information no matter where you are in the world. Using programs such as Remote Administrator and PC Anywhere you can log into your work or home computer using the same links and systems.

You are also able to share information: running an FTP server is an efficient and reliable way to transfer data from one computer to another. Again, specific software must be installed to set up an FTP site, but this is easy to do and free software is available. You might want to use an FTP site to share files, such as pictures, with colleagues. Once set up, users are able to log in to access, edit or upload files.
