What is a Dedicated IP?

Dedicated IP addresses are IP addresses assigned to your web hosting account only for as long as you retain the account. It will not change over the duration. On the other hand, shared IP addresses may be assigned to multiple web hosting accounts simultaneously. 

Most shared hosting accounts will use shared IP addresses, while Virtual Private Server (VPS) accounts get dedicated IP addresses. ScalaHosting provides all VPS customers a dedicated IP address for each account, with options to purchase more if needed.

Advantages of Using a Dedicated IP Address

There are many benefits of using dedicated IP addresses, including easier access to your website, better server control, improved security, and more. You may also need one for certain types of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates in some cases.
