IP Addresses and IPv6 FAQ

Can I change my IP address?

Residential clients cannot change their IP address.

IP addresses belonging to residential clients are dynamic, so they automatically change without notice. This is normal and does not affect your Internet service. 

Some people think that changing their IP address helps protect their computer against hackers. Unfortunately, hackers can track IP address changes. To protect your computer from ill-intentioned users, we recommend Cogeco’s Security Services.
