A dedicated IP (Internet Protocol) is a unique Internet address dedicated exclusively to a single hosting account. This is in contrast to the normal configuration of several hosting accounts residing on a single server and sharing its IP address.

Dedicated IP addresses let you:

  • Use an SSL certificate on Web & Classic hosting accounts

    Our SSL certificates include a dedicated hosting IP for these types of account, so you do not need to purchase a dedicated IP credit separately if you are adding a certificate to your site.

  • 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.
  • Ensure faster response during periods of high traffic load.
