An IP address is a unique number identifying the location of your computer on the Internet, enabling it to communicate with other computers.

A Ghost Gaming static IP address means your computer is assigned a fixed, permanent address that is unique to you and does not change. You will need a static IP address, if you want to:

  • Run your own FTP server
  • Run your own website
  • Host online gaming sessions
  • Host your own website or domain name server
  • Connect to your computer from anywhere in the world via remote access
  • Ensure other computers can locate your computer anywhere across the internet
  • Conduct voice-over- IP calls or other web-based services
