How our IP Addresses work


Dynamic IP

By default  for IPv4 we use Sticky Dynamic IP Addresses provided via DHCP, these will often remain the same for a few weeks at a time however we are unable to guarantee how long you will retain the same IP Address or manually change the IP from our side (other than the purchase of a Static IP as indicated below), with any Dynamic IP it may change at any time to another random Dynamic IP from within one of our pools.

Static IP

PLEASE NOTE: The sale of this product has been suspended until further notice due to a network migration, existing Static IP entitlements will remain.

Once added this will activate overnight and a new IP Address will be assigned to your service that will not change without prior notice. (Please note if you move and your old service is deactivated before the new service is activated you will receive a new Static IP when activated at the new address as we can not hold a Static IP without an active service)
Note: These IP Addresses are issued to your connection via DHCP just like our Dynamic IP Addresses so you do not need to make any changes in your router.



CGNAT Stands for Carrier Grade Network Address Translation
We do not currently use CGNAT although it is likely that all providers will need to move to this sort technology one day in future due to the difficulty in obtaining more IPv4 addresses with a limited total number available.


We currently provide only Dynamic IPv6 addresses which are provided via DHCP with Prefix Delegation (/56). We do not currently offer Static IPv6 addresses.
