When you sign up with Bluehost, you’re gain access to a super power server, shared with others. Shared hosting is great because it costs a lot less than running your own server because you don’t have to buy, build, or manage it yourself. But with shared hosting you also share an IP address with other websites. So for added security and protection, Bluehost also offers the option to enable a dedicated IP address, unique to you!
When you enable your own dedicated IP address you protect yourself against problems caused by other websites on your shared sever. Also many web applications aso need a dedicated IP address to work. Simply visit the “Upgrades” tab in your Bluehost account to activate your dedicated IP address today!
