Re: Static addresses
I'm with Virgin Media in the UK and my IP address is 'static' in that it always stays the same. (Until they have a network 'upgrade', then my modem locks up and I have to phone them and they 'reboot' it and I get a new IP address). The longest time I went with the same IP address was five years. Also, if I check with whatsmyip.com and similar services, they tell me that the host name is cpc3-(redacted)-2-0-cust(redacted).cable.virginm.net, which suggests to me that I can easily be traced by anyone who contacts VM and asks them nicely where I live.
Because of this, I have no problem directing my No-IP services to my home, until the next VM network 'upgrade' when I need to update the IP pointers.
