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