Who Needs a Dedicated IP Address?
Most shared hosting users have little need for a dedicated IP address. However, a dedicated IP address does provide certain advantages.
Generally speaking, a dedicated IP allows you to:
- View your website via its IP address.
- Access your accounts by FTP or the Web when the domain name is otherwise inaccessible, such as during domain name propagation periods.
- Set up SSL protection on your website.
NOTE: Our SSL certificates include a dedicated hosting IP, so you do not need to purchase a dedicated IP credit separately if you are adding a certificate to your site on your shared hosting account.
