• Why do I need a dedicated ip-address for the site?

    • views 1235

    Not for the first time, I have discovered that you have to pay a considerable amount for hosting plans for each additional IP. I have an online watch store targeting Ukrainian and Russian audiences. Do I need to buy an ip? What is it used for? Please tell me.

    A while back, a dedicated IP address was necessary for sites to work over the protected HTTPS protocol. Now it`s possible to install an SSL certificate without a dedicated IP, with the support of the TLS protocol - its SNI extension. In addition, a dedicated IP provides a certain isolation if the site is hosted on a virtual host, where multiple sites use the same IP address, especially for the stable email operation. Additional addresses need to be purchased if you want to distribute various services (databases, mail servers, dns) while accessing them from the Internet.
    A dedicated IP address is also needed for security. Everyone knows that on a virtual hosting. there a lot of sites on one IP-address. If these are normal sites, then there aren`t any problems, but if it`s doorways, or porn or something like that, it`s not safe to be on the same IP address with them.

    Good afternoon! A dedicated IP address is needed for people who want their site to work on HTTPS with old browsers that do not support SNI (Server Name Indication)
    Good afternoon! In your case, no additional IP is required.
    One dedicated IP is provided for free, the second is not required, especially for one site.
