Static IP Addressing

As far as I recall, it is possible. Raise a ticket to PN requesting a an additional (not different) IP, and explain to them your reasons why you want it.

As far as I recall, if your reasons are valid and good enough, they will issue it to you.

I don't know if there'd be a charge for it though.

Static IP Addressing

You may not need a second IP address, as long as you are only running one server.

Either use the router’s port forwarding options to forward packets to the appropriate port on the server.
Or setup a “DMZ” on router, to forward all traffic to the server. (This is less secure)
