To start with, every time you connect to VPN, your real IP address is immediately replaced with a new one, generated from the remote server you have selected yourself or have been assigned automatically. As a result, if you connect to a server in another country, your IP address naturally reflects that. Therefore, if you use VPN to connect to different remote servers on a daily basis, the Internet will consider you as a different person every time you are online.
Nevertheless, most users are satisfied with using the IP address shared by hundreds of users at the same time, as it allows to keep their anonymity when searching the web. On the other hand, while a dedicated IP address is not as discreet regarding the anonymity, there is lower possibility that it will be blacklisted as easily as a shared IP address.
Generally speaking, the main difference between the two is that a shared IP address is used by hundreds of users at the very same time, while a dedicated IP is linked to one unique account.
In general, many different reasons encourage users to buy dedicated IP address together with a VPN service, but they all are related to accessibility and better performance. For instance, having a dedicated IP address together with VPN can be especially valuable when using websites like Gmail or PayPal, since many of these services require to re-verify your account from time to time and will reject your attempt to connect if you are using a shared VPN IP address. Besides, in some cases, it is required to have a dedicated IP address to access IP-restricted networks, secure banking or corporate information, files, and databases.
In addition to this, those who are fans of online games may have come across a DDoS attack in their life. So it is worth mentioning that by using a VPN with a dedicated IP address you can get a maximum protection against DDoS attacks and even decrease latency and lag that may disturb your online gaming experience. Also, in many cases, a dedicated IP address could assure faster connection speed, greater bandwidth allocation, and uninterrupted online experience.
For this reason, we at NordVPN offer a number of unique IP addresses to accommodate those needs. Although a dedicated IP server is just like any other NordVPN server, but with one additional feature. It allows ordering a private IP address for an additional fee, which will be assigned to a single hosting account and can be used exclusively by one person.
As for now, we currently offer dedicated IPs in the United States (Buffalo), Germany (Frankfurt), United Kingdom (Milton Keynes) and Netherlands (Amsterdam). Thus, if you wish to purchase the unique IP address, please contact our support team at NordVPN here to get further assistance and detailed instructions to get you started.
