What is the difference between static and dynamic IP addresses?

Q:
What is the difference between static and dynamic IP addresses?

A:

Dynamic IPs are subject to change for a number of reasons. This type of IP address is pulled out of a pool of available addresses within the Sparklight Business system. Static IPs are available in 1, 5 and 13 block configurations. A compatible Gateway is required for static IP addresses.  The customer's Static IP is always the same, which is a necessity when you are running a web server, mail server or any piece of equipment that needs to have the same IP address every time you access it.
