A single static IP is a specific IP address taken from a larger subnet, but specifically allocated to only that Internet service. A block of IP addresses is a dedicated subnet of multiple IP addresses (available in groups of 5, 13, 29, etc.) that are allocated specifically to an Internet service. Once configured on the Internet service, a block can be utilized for any number of purposes, such as using specific IPs for specific servers, or lower layer services.
