  1. What is an IP address?

    An IP address is a numerical label assigned to each device in a network. In a hosting environment, this label is assigned to the web hosting server or an email server that runs your website or emails respectively.

  2. Do I need one?

    In a shared hosting environment, all customers point their domain name / website address to a single IP address and this is satisfactory for 99% of scenarios. A dedicated IP address is required if your website is accepting credit cards and that all transactions need to be encrypted using a secure socket layer certificate.
