Static IP Question

    I have a new Plesk server and I need to implement a firewall. I have read the posts about APF and the iptables.

    However, I am interested in the Plesk firewall due to ease of use, I am new to Linux so the Plesk approach seems easier for me.

    My question, Is it more secure using the Plesk firewall to have a static IP and select the option "Allow from selected sources, deny from others"?

    Or is there a better approach that will save the money used for the static IP and be just as secure?

    Thanks in advance,
