    Right, they will give you a dynamic IP in lots of countries, but only supply dedicated IPs in eight. You're in Norway, your IP is in Singapore (for instance).

    Those are the locations of the dedicated IP addresses. You don't need to live in that country to use a dedicated IP address server in that country.

    As Samarex says - he lives in the Philippines but has a PureVPN dedicated IP address in Hong Kong.

    As you're in Norway I'd recommend getting a dedicated IP address from the UK or Germany.

    Ah, ok. Sorry for being a little thick, have never used a VPN before. So I can buy PureVPN and get a dedicated IP for UK and when I log in to VPN I will log into that UK ip and bob's your uncle. Fantasy Grounds ready for all.

    Think of it as a forwarding mailbox. All your mail gets sent to your official mailbox (VPN IP address), and that mailbox sends your email to what ever mailbox you tell it to that week (ie you logging into the VP).

    Understood. But that does not mean that you can not use their service with a dedicated IP. What it means is that you will have a VPN connection to a server in whatever country you select. It does mean you will see additional latency, but it is likely to be a fraction of a second, nothing that will impact FG. As an added benefit, when using the VPN, websites will think you are in that country and services like Netflix will give you the catalog for that country, not Norway.

    As Trenloe said UK or Gemenary ,I would do ping testing to see which place would give you the best responce.
