Do you provide Static IP Addresses?

Do you provide Static IP Addresses?

The short answer is we can but, first of all think about what you need a static IPv4 address for, they are in very short supply.

If you are an avid gamer, host servers on your home network or have devices you want to control remotely when you are out of your home then a Static IPv4 address might be better for you otherwise you probably don't need one at all.

To get a Static IPv4 address, you will have to purchase our Static IPv4 add-on, currently available for £5 per month extra. For more details on this please contact our sales team at or on 01163 800290

If you don't want to purchase the add-on there are some alternatives to access your LAN devices remotely:

  • IPv6: We support IPv6 and every customer is allocated a set of IPv6 prefixes for usage. This will allow you to access your devices (as long as they support IPv6, which most modern devices do) on the network over IPv6 remotely, without port forwarding. This can only be done from other networks that also support IPv6.

  • Overlay networks: You may be able to use a 3rd party overlay network such as Tailscale or ZeroTier
