NordVPN and dedicated IP servers in Milan
NordVPN: Best VPN service. Safe surfing online
“In the past, users who wanted to take advantage of a dedicated IP would get one from another country (such as France or Germany). From now on, Italians will enjoy an improved experience, not only having a unique IP address but also avoiding compromising the content they can access in Italy,” he says Cristian Gianni, Country Manager for Italy at NordVPN.
Typically, when a user connects to a VPN server, his IP address changes but he shares it with other users. The dedicated IP address, on the other hand, is an address Unique static IP which can only be used by one user.
Benefits of using a dedicated IP address
There are many situations where having a dedicated IP address is useful:
- Secure access to corporate servers. To prevent unauthorized access to sensitive systems, administrators can specify a list of authorized IP addresses. By doing so, users can access a system only if their IP matches one on the whitelist. A dedicated IP address is the ideal solution for securely accessing corporate remote access systems or private servers.
- Secure online payments. If a user connects to a VPN to bank securely online, it may appear that they are virtually in a different place each time. Banks may consider this suspicious activity and block your access to your account. Using a VPN with a dedicated static IP address allows you to avoid repetitive checks while ensuring user safety.
- Avoid blacklists. One disadvantage of using a shared IP address is the “bad neighbor” effect: you never know what other users with the same IP address are doing. That’s why shared IPs can get blacklisted, limiting your access to certain websites. Even if a dedicated IP address is not that discreet, it is much less likely to be blacklisted.
- Forget the CAPTCHAs. Multiple people using the same shared IP address often trigger CAPTCHA authentication. It gets too annoying to constantly prove you’re not a robot. Using a dedicated IP address, on the other hand, it will be possible to access your e-mail box and other online accounts without unnecessary interruptions.
