A dynamic IP Address is not static and could change at any time as it is controlled by your ISP or it is used for running a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Pool) server. This typically could be used for dial-up, wireless and also high speed connections. Every time you dial up or log on, you get q new IP, for that time you are logged in or on-line.
