Every time you connect to VPN, your real IP address is replaced with another one, generated from the remote VPN server you select. If you connect to a server from the countries list or let the NordVPN app choose the best server by using auto-connect, you may end up in a different server every time, effectively appearing as a different person every day. If you have a specific favorite server on the server list and connect to it daily, then your IP address will remain the same.
All these IP addresses are static-shared. That means that everyone connected to the same server will receive the same IP. Such configuration adds additional security benefits, particularly because no Internet activity can be traced back to an actual user. However, in some cases, it might cause problems. Shared IP addresses may get blacklisted by some web pages, various sites may ask you to enter ‘captchas’, and so on.
The shared IP addresses work for most VPN users just fine. However, some customers need a personal static IP to access certain websites, databases, servers, and more. To accommodate them, NordVPN offers a number of dedicated IPs for an additional fee. This way, users can enjoy the benefits of full encryption without the risk of other users with the same IP address jeopardizing their access rights.
The dedicated IPs are available in the United States (Buffalo, Los Angeles, Dallas, Matawan), Germany (Frankfurt), the United Kingdom (London) and the Netherlands (Amsterdam).
Benefits of using dedicated IPs:
Please note that in order to use the dedicated IP feature, you need to have an active NordVPN account. Of course, you will still have access to the regular service. Increase your cybersecurity with advanced features like Double VPN, military-grade encryption, no logging and many more!
