This guide will show you how to register your IP address on the ExpressVPN website.

In order to use MediaStreamer smoothly, you must register your IP address on the ExpressVPN website so that ExpressVPN will recognize your IP address and grant your device access to MediaStreamer.

Note: Before you proceed, disable any proxy settings on your device without connecting to ExpressVPN.

1. Access your DNS settings on the ExpressVPN website

To go to your ExpressVPN DNS settings, enter your ExpressVPN credentials. Select Sign In.

Sign in to your ExpressVPN account.

Under IP address registration, click Register my IP address. If it already reads “registered” next to your IP address, there is no need to select this option again.

Click “Register my IP address.”

Toggle Automatically register my IP address on. This is recommended as it automatically tracks changes to your IP address.

Toggle “Automatically register my IP address” on.

When will ExpressVPN remove my IPs?

If you have enabled Automatically register your IP address, your IP address will be deleted if:

  • you don’t use the ExpressVPN app with the registered IP for 30 days
  • you don’t sign in to your ExpressVPN account with the registered IP for 30 days

If you have disabled Automatically register your IP address, your IP address will be deleted if you don’t register your IP address and use the registered IP address for 30 days

For revoked accounts, it can take up to 30 days for the IP to be removed.

If you have a dynamic IP address, it is possible that an IP address that was previously assigned to you will be assigned to someone else later. If someone else registers that IP address with ExpressVPN, that IP will reappear in ExpressVPN’s systems.
