A dedicated hosting IP assigns a single IP address to your hosting account and website, which is not shared by any other accounts on the same server. A Dedicated Hosting IP will work with all Elite hosting plans except the Managed WordPress Hosting.
Add a dedicated IP to your site and access your website even if your domain name is unavailable, such as during domain propagation. Simply type your Dedicated Hosting IP address into the address bar of your web browser!
Yes. With a Dedicated IP (Static IP), your own dedicated server handles your and your company’s traffic — nobody else’s. Therefore, performance is improved, and speed is quicker than a Shared IP, which uses servers with other unknown users.

If you don’t have a Dedicated IP (Internet Protocol) address, your hosting account shares its server’s IP address with other hosting accounts. In most cases, that’s all right. But, you might need the unique address that a Dedicated IP – also known as a static IP – provides if you have a large dedicated hosting website with SSL encryption or heavy traffic.
There are many reasons for needing a Dedicated IP address. For example:
Direct Access – With a Unique IP address, you can view your website using a hosting IP address, or you can have direct access to your website’s files using FTP or a Web browser. Updating DNS – When you update your domain name’s DNS, your site becomes inaccessible for 24-48 hours. This can cause major issues for you if you need to FTP or preview any changes. With a unique address (Dedicated IP), you can upload content and preview your website with no problems! All you need to do is type your Dedicated IP address into your browser and your site will come up.
SSL Certificates – SSL certificates require a Dedicated IP address. A website that requests personal or payment information should have SSL protection, but SSLs require a static IP (Dedicated IP) to work. With a Dedicated IP, you are able to set up an SSL that redirects your visitors through an encrypted hosting connection. (Our SSL certificates include a Dedicated 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.)
