Q :( What's the difference between a Dynamic and Static IP Address ?

A ): Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a network application protocol used by devices (DHCP clients) to obtain configuration information for operation in an Internet Protocol Network.
An IP address which changes periodically, e.g. each time a user dials into their Internet Service Provider. This contrast static IP addresses. This is common with Cable Internet Providers.
This is a group of IP Addresses that come from a pool. So every time you start your computer or disconnect / reconnect your modem, a new IP address is assigned from that pool.

Static IP Address is a permanent IP address that is assigned to a node in a TCP/IP network. This is used on DSL (digital subscriber line) which are primarily used on telephone lines. These like cable connections are dedicated lines that require no dial-up. Essentially this is one dedicated line assigned to you, the user.

I hope this info was helpful.
