Operations with the Internet

What does the service “Real (public) dynamic/static IP-address” mean?

Every tariff package is provided with a real (public) dynamic IP-address free of charge: it is randomized and with every new connection, it is different.

The service real static IP-address, unlike the previous one, allows to get a static IP-address with the connection to the Internet and remains invariable and assigned to a subscriber.

The service Real static IP-address can be useful in such cases:

  • For work with torrent and other p2p clients (fully-featured operating mode “no limits”, which provides the possibility to get connected with other users who work with limited operating mode).
  • For work with services which have restrictions for simultaneous connection of the users with common IP-address (Rapidshare, Megaupload, System LIGA:LAW (Система ЛІГА:ЗАКОН) etc).
  • To increase security of usage of the electronic payment system (for example, there is a possibility to limit access to the e-wallet at the indicated IP-address).
  • To increase security of usage of the servers and services management system (for example, limited access from the indicated IP-address to certain parts of a web-site).
  • While using applications and protocols which require available subscriber’s public IP-address (static or dynamic). For example, the service can be used for videoconferences, video surveillance or connection through satellite networks.
  • For identification of the subscriber by the IP-address while gaining access to information resources of the corporate computer network.
  • For organization of virtual Web and FTP servers without the use and registration of domain names, etc.

 

Recommended safety tips so that delinquents couln’t use your access to the Internet:

  • Use a complicated password.
  • Change your password more often.
  • Don’t write your password on a piece of paper and don’t leave it near your computer (especially at enterprises).
  • As any computer network, Wi-Fi-can be a high risk source of an unauthorized access. Besides, it is easier to penetrate into a wireless network than a wired network — you don’t have to get connected to wires, it is enough to be in the signal processing area.
    Any user can set up the home network in several minutes, but without basic knowledge about these technologies and security in the local network, the user can become an easy target for those who want to penetrate into his network. And, if anyone says, he has nothing to hide in his/her computer, that person does not realize that a hacker can use his/her computer for performing attacks, and after that, the user may be visited by the representatives of state authorities and will have to explain for a long time, that he/she has not got the slightest idea of what has happened.
    1. It is necessary to change the access point standard password.
    2. If you are not the provider, you can disable the IP network translation which will help hide your network. And only the person, who knows its name, will be able to find it.
    3. If possible, activate filtration by MAC-addresses. But in fact, even this security measure won’t be a problem for penetration into your network.
    4. Use reliable WPA data scrambling.

 

Thunderstorm electricity
