Do I need a static IP address?

As standard, all Connexin customers are given a dynamic IP address for free. This can mean that now and then your IP address can change. This won’t affect most services such as general browsing, or streaming. Many customers find that this is the best way to use their internet.

For those who want greater control over their connection, we can add a static IP address for £5 extra each month.

Examples of times when a Static IP address could be useful include when hosting websites from home, setting up servers or for remote management of certain CCTV systems.

If you don’t know what your IP address currently is, you can check using websites such as whatismyipaddress.com.
