Is IP plays an important role in the hosting of a sites or can it be dedicated?
As the IP Address is getting harder to get, most web hosting company doesn’t offer dedicated IP to their hosting account. So basically when we host our site with them, we are sharing your IP Address with that company.
The web request is handled by Web Server,and the web server will load the our site based on the host header or virtual host name that our site is configured.Like Reseller Hosting, Dedicated Hosting, Shared Hosting plans – CPWebHosting is used for further processing.
There is no performance benefit on using dedicated IP over shared IP. It all depends on our hosting provider bandwidth.So why people want dedicated IP?. The main reason is if we planning to use SSL on our site, then we need dedicated IP.If not then either static IP or shared IP,it doesn’t make so much sense.
