Domain Name Services

Domain Hosting Types

Dedicated IP

Dedicated IP domain hosting provides your domain name with its own IP address. The first domain name on a Web hosting account must use Dedicated IP hosting, with the exception of WP Hosting. Additional domain names added to your account can use either Dedicated IP, Shared IP, or Parked domain hosting.

The first Dedicated IP domain name on your hosting account is hosted at no extra cost. If you want to use Dedicated IP hosting for additional domain names, there is a monthly hosting fee for each additional domain name hosted using Dedicated IP hosting.

Shared IP

Domain names hosted using Shared IP hosting will share an IP address with one of your Dedicated IP domain names.

Hosting domain names using Shared IP hosting does not incur an additional monthly hosting fee.

Parked Domain

Domains can be "parked" on another domain name that you already have hosted using Dedicated or Shared IP hosting.

Parked domains will point to the same website and website files as the domain name on which they are parked.

For example: If you park the domain name example.net on the domain example.com, users visiting example.net/about.html will see the files for the page example.com/about.html

Parking domain names do not incur an additional monthly hosting fee.

Weebly

Weebly is a special type of domain hosting available only to Shared Hosting accounts.

Weebly domain hosting is required before a domain is able to use the Weebly Site Builder software.

There is no additional charge for this hosting type, however, there may be a charge for the Weebly service itself, depending on your selected Weebly service plan.

Note that the following restrictions apply to domains used for Weebly:

  • Weebly domains may not have other domains parked on them
  • Weebly domains may not share their IP with other domains
