Static IP is nothing but IP which is fixed and it won’t be changed frequently. There are two types of IP’s. Static and Dynamic. Dynamic IP is the one which changes frequently.
In this Article, I am going to explain how to create a static IP in Google Cloud Console. A blog or website is attached to a static IP. If you have been into digital world, there is no need to explain about IP address.
So In my article on how to create free RDP, I have mentioned that you have to create a static IP to assign it to VM instance instead of using Dynamic IP.
Here is the reason why. Whenever you restart your instance, the IP address of your instance gets changed. The reason is the IP is dynamic. So you need to look into IP everytime you restart your instance.
Instead of that if you reserve a static IP, you can attach the Static IP for your instance. So even when you restart your VM instance the IP wont get changed. You can connect to the instance or RDP instantly with the old static IP only.
