Do I need a dedicated IP?

You only need to add a dedicated IP address to your shared hosting account if you want to access your hosting account by an IP address instead of its domain name. This is primarily useful if you're transferring your website from another host to GoWebsite.

Dedicated IP addresses and SSL certificates

If you have a shared hosting through GoWebsite and want to use an SSL certificate, you do not need to purchase a dedicated IP address.

Type of hosting? Free dedicated IP with SSL? Dedicated IP required?
Web or Classic
All other hosting

Web & Classic hosting accounts do not need to purchase a dedicated IP address for their SSL certificate because they receive one for free with the SSL certificate purchase.

Other types of hosting do not require a dedicated IP address for an SSL certificate to work.
