A dedicated IP means that a website has its own IP address. When users type URL or the IP address it brings to the same domain name. Dedicated IP address is also called as static IP. It is an IP which is not shared by any other website. This type of hosting provides a unique IP address that is used exclusively for each individual server space or domain.
The dedicated websites allow the customer to upload content and other files to their own personal, secure web space. These types of web hosting accounts are ideal for larger businesses or for e-commerce websites. Dedicated IP web hosting is also ideal for individuals those who want to buy the unique IP addresses for a premium price.
Another advantage to using a dedicated IP web hosting service is that it provides for greater flexibility while also allowing for more complex hosting. Two advantages of this are that they include a private SSL certificate and an anonymous FTP. An SSL certificate provides for online businesses that need to make sure that their customers will have secure transactions. The advantage of an anonymous FTP allows people to share information on the Internet. This will allow anybody who is using the Internet to go to that company’s website and access a public directory by using FTP software.
