IP Address?


#1

Hello,

I was wondering if my Dreamhost site is referable by a static IP address. If so, where would I find out what my assigned IP address is?

Thanks!

You may have different IP addresses for different domains or subdomains that you host, but a lot of them will be the same. The IPs are static, but there are rare occasions when your domain or subdomain will get a new IP assigned.

On the panel under “Domains>Manage Domains” you’ll see a list of the domains and subdomains being hosted on your account. If you click on the DNS link for a domain, you’ll see a page showing the DNS records for that domain. This will show you the IP address assigned for that domain.

Oh, what do you mean when you say “referable”? You can’t just enter the IP address in the browser and get to your site. DreamHost is shared Apache hosting so your domain or subdomain name needs to be in the http header in order for Apache to know which domain is being requested.

That is, unless you’ve paid for the “unique IP” feature where your domain gets a unique IP assigned to it that isn’t used by any other domain.

Your second post is probably exactly what I want. How do I go about adding a unique IP to my existing hosting package? Or do I have to start over with a new hosting account?
