What is a dedicated IP?


Surfshark Dedicated IP is a private VPN IP address, which belongs to only you. Purchasing the Dedicated IP address will allow you to receive your own Surfshark IP address, which is not reachable by any other Surfshark users.

The benefits of a Dedicated IP

  • Works with all protocols. You don't have to choose between website speed and a fixed IP. Our Dedicated IP works with all our protocols, even WireGuard®, for maximum speed.

  • Reduce Captcha requests. Captcha requests are a common issue while using a standard VPN. Many users might be using the same IP address as you are, which causes Google to prompt you with Captcha requests. A Dedicated IP helps to minimize Captchas, as websites no longer receive multiple requests from the same IP address.

  • Better network performance. Using a Dedicated IP, your network should become quicker than when using a normal VPN server. With such an IP, you will be the only person generating traffic.

  • Greater security and privacy. As you are the only one using the IP address, there is a far lesser chance of malicious traffic.

  • Eases accessing remote networks. Assessing networks remotely with a shared VPN server is tricky since you never know what address you'll get whenever you connect. That's not an issue with a dedicated static IP.
