Static IP (Internet Protocol) is a unique IP address that is not shared with any other account on the same server. The majority of all web sites are hosted with a shared IP, and most hosting customers don’t need a Static Hosting IP. However, you might consider paying the small additional cost for static IP if:
- 1. You want to access your accounts by FTP as well as WWW when the domain name is inaccessible, for example during domain name propagation periods.
- 2. You want your site to be backwards-compatible with older browsers.
- 3. You want to create a corporate intranet.
- 4. You need a faster response with high traffic loads.
