What is a dedicated IP?
A dedicated IP address is a unique Internet address assigned exclusively to a single hosting account. A dedicated IP address lets you:
- Use FTP to access your account while the domain name is otherwise inaccessible, such as during domain name propagation periods.
- Ensure faster response during periods of high traffic load.
- View your Shared Hosting website via its IP address.
You can purchase a dedicated IP address for your Shared Hosting account at any time. Web Hosting Plus accounts already include a dedicated IP address.
