Static IP Addresses
Computers who connect to the Internet are assigned a unique numerical address known as an Internet Protocol (IP) address. This unique address identifies each computer on the Internet so that computers can communicate with each other by sending and receiving information using this addressing scheme. A static IP address is simply a “permanent” address that remains associated with a single computer over an extended period of time. This differs from a dynamic IP address, which is assigned ad hoc at the start of each session, normally changing from one session to the next.
Assignment is handled by a person’s Internet Service Provider (ISP). Every ISP is designated a large block of IP addresses that fall within a specific numerical range. The ISP server automatically delegates available IP addresses within that range as needed, to clients logging on to the Internet. When a person disables his or her Internet connection, the temporarily assigned dynamic IP address goes back into the pool for reassignment. Dynamically assigned IP addresses are fine for most people, however, some prefer a static IP address.
Please contact one of our customer service representatives at 319-293-3187 for additional information regarding Van Buren Telephone Company, Inc.’s static IP service!
Regular computer maintenance and protection saves you time and money — and can even protect you against identity theft.
If you don’t continuously update your software, your hard drive won’t work. And if your computer crashes, you could lose everything and still have to pay for expensive repairs, or even a new hard drive.
Even more critical is computer protection. If you don’t have the proper internet security software, your data is wide open to multiple threats. Viruses can wipe out your files and pictures, spyware can lead to identity theft and without a firewall, your information is left open to hackers. And with new viruses and spyware being created every day, if you don’t keep your software constantly updated, even with the proper software in place, you’re still vulnerable.
With SecureIT, you don’t have to worry about computer maintenance OR security ever again. You get a complete solution that is GUARANTEED for just a fraction of what you would pay for individual software programs, and without having to do a thing. And with SecureIT, you choose the level of service you need. SecureIT even offers professional installation!
