Dedicated Ip? Is it worth it?

When I was looking at the packages that Xisto offers, I saw the dedicated IP option. I am not sure what it is and I was wondering if it is worth getting it. Does it help the search engine optimization? What is the difference between having one and not having one?

It gives your website it's own unique IP, while without one you will be sharing an IP with a few other people. With a dedicated IP, there are benefits, such as:

* View your website via its IP address. * Access your accounts by FTP or the Web when the domain name is otherwise inaccessible, such as during domain name propagation periods.
* Ensure faster response during periods of high traffic load.
* Set up SSL protection on your website.


So it is up to you whether you want that or not.

those are all good reason. also, you don't need a dedicated ip for ssl if your host is willing to share theirs.the most important part of a dedicated ip though is that it will seperate you from the other websites sharing the same address. it it good or bad for seo? NEITHER. BUT, if one website has a bad reputation, search engines can ban the ip. so you suffer for a mistake of someone else. this is already going on with some gambling sites and porn sites and other sites as well.so, use your own judgement. when you start getting a lot of traffic, i highly suggest getting a dedicated ip. i also suggest switching to custom name servers.

Thank you. What are the chances of my domain’s IP get shared with a site containing that kind of content? Also, why should I switch to custom name servers? How much would it help?

there is a low risk since xisto has hosting rules for shared hosting. custom name servers will make your site look more professional to those who do a "whois". they will see YOUR domain and not Xisto - Web Hosting. looks better, doesn't it?

also, this is still a debate that google will lower a rank of one website who shares an ip with another with a low rank.....i don't believe it though. especially when using two different domain names.

that's a good plan. name servers just hide where your hosting is coming from and they see YOUR domain rather than your hosting companies domain. no other real advantage. looks more professional and a company more worth trusting....that's really the only true andvantage in my opinion.

name servers are a one time fee. dedicated ip's you have to keep paying for them i believe so when you have the $5, update the name servers....then when you have your 500-100 visitors, you can probably afford the dedicated ip. again...your plan is good to wait. it's not really necessary right now.

Thank you.  I think that once I get enough money credited into my billing account, I am going to host a website with Xisto without the dedicated IP or custom namespaces checked. Once I get around a 800-1000 visitors daily, I might consider getting those options.

I have one more question.  Does the custom namespaces only make the "whois" look more professional or does it do other things.  I don't see the point in custom namespaces if they only make your site "look better".
