What’s the advantage of having a dedicated IP?

  • The only practical use of a dedicated IP is to install a SSL certificate. SSL certificates can only be installed on hosting accounts with a dedicated IP.
  • During the website development phase, some advanced users may need a dedicated IP to access a hosting account that doesn’t have a domain name.
  • Some webmasters think a dedicated IP is useful for Search Engine Optimization (SEO); however, we can’t confirm that.
