Dedicated IPAssigns the new account a static IP address that will not be shared with other accounts unless the user specifies an account for which the IP address should be shared. This option is ideal for resellers.

  • This list is populated by unreserved IP addresses. For more information about reserved IP addresses, read our Show/Edit Reserved IPs documentation.

If you create a package with this option enabled, you will not be able to change this option later.
