Advanced hosting needs a Dedicated IP Address
If you have advanced hosting needs, dedicated IP address may be for you. A dedicated IP address means each web hosting account has a unique address, not shared by any other accounts on the same server.
Since the majority of sites on the Web are hosted via shared IP, most of our hosting customers don’t need a dedicated IP address. However, you might consider paying the small additional cost for dedicated IP address if:
- Account Access: You want to access your accounts by FTP as well as the Web when the domain name is otherwise inaccessible, such as domain name propagation periods.
- Compatibility: You want your site to be backwards-compatible with older browsers.
- Security: You want to create a corporate intranet or install an SSL certificate.
- Performance: You need a faster response with high traffic loads.
