Currently they only offer static IPs - however it's been said that they're
looking at enabling dynamic IPs in the future.

What's the advantage of a dynamic IP? Are you thinking from the point of
view of it being harder to hack because the IP address isn't constant?

No, just thinking i am fed up of trollsspoofing my IP! At least with a
dynamic, it will change every time i reset the router. Having major troll
moments here .. need to get rid of static: krystian.plus.com

Not neccesarily so as some servers 'bind' the IP to specific MACs, so
unless your router is off for a long enough time for the IP to be needed &
allocated elsewhere you still get the same IP.

My last ISP allocated dynamic IP & AFAIR the only time it actually changed
was when they reset the servers, even a release & renew normally just gave
the same IP as before...

But will it? My experience with DHCP is that when it renegotiates an IP
address (eg by resetting a router or doing ipconfig /release + ipconfig
/renew) you very often get the same address that you had before.

krystian.plus.com


What sort of precautions can be taken? While you're connected, won't there
always be an entry pointing to your computer's (or router's) public name,
even if the associated IP address may change occasionally?

I'm fairly sure you can ask Plus.Net to remove the entry (so a lookup on the
IP only shows a-b-c-d.plus.com - assumes your IP is a.b.c.d :-) if that can
help in the meantime.

As mentioned by kraftee, DHCP will allocate the same dynamic IP
address to a MAC until it is re-used because the lease time has
expired and there are no "free" addresses. You will need to know the
lease time to know how long you need the router off to have a good
chance of getting a different address - there is no guarantee - or
spoof a MAC address every time.
