What is the difference between Static IP and Dynamic IP and which one do I get when using VPN4ALL?

Static IP means an IP address will not change whenever a device connects to a network. Dynamic IP means that s device will get a random IP from a fixed IP range each time when it connects to a network.

At VPN4ALL we have many ranges of static IP addresses located in different datacenters. To us, all our IP addresses are static – they don’t change when our servers are reconnected to the internet. To our users, however, the IP addresses are allocated dynamically. When you connect to VPN4ALL our server will give you a new secure and anonymous public IP address which will be automatically chosen from the range of currently available IP addresses on that VPN4ALL server. This IP address will not change until you disconnect from VPN4ALL. Next time you connect to VPN4ALL, the IP address you may get a different IP address, possibly even from a different IP range and located in a different datacenter (but in the same geographic location). Note that all the VPN4ALL IPs, static and randomly dynamically allocated per each connection, are secure and anonymous.
