Static IP address
Static IP address means that the IP address assigned to any connection remains the same always, it never changes. The Local IP address which your routers assign to any device is not similar to your public address. In most cases internet service providers give dynamic public IP addresses. To get a static IP address, you will need a VPN connection which has a dedicated IP address. Using normal internet service can’t assure you of a static IP address.
Dynamic IP address
Dynamic IP address is a temporary IP address which is assigned to any node or device when it is connected to the network. Dynamic IP address is automatically configured and it is temporary in nature. In today’s time the vast majority of IP addresses are dynamic. This may result in losing access to your while whitelisting IP address.
Before whitelisting any IP address, know these differences properly. Also check if the IP address is static or dynamic.
