A dedicated IP address is a unique Internet address assigned exclusively to a single hosting account. A dedicated IP address lets you: View your website via its IP address.
Use FTP to access your account while the domain name is otherwise inaccessible, such as during domain name propagation periods.
Ensure faster response during periods of high traffic load.
Business Hosting accounts include a dedicated IP address. You can purchase a dedicated IP address for your Shared Hosting account at any time.
Melon Canary is constantly working to provide our customers with the best hosting experience on the market. As part of these efforts, we're upgrading our Windows 4G hosting customers to Plesk hosting and our Linux 4G hosting customers to Linux Hosting with cPanel. We know that moving can be hard, but we're taking care of the heavy lifting for you. All of your website content, databases, and files will be moved to your new hosting platform automatically.
A website backup is a snapshot of all your website's important components. Website backups should include all of the following elements of your website: Website code files
Any website databases
Any add-ons, plugins, or themes used by your website
Making backups of your website is an important part of regular site maintenance. You don't want to be left without a backup of your site should something happen - such as a security compromise, or if your billing accidentally lapses long enough to cancel your account. By keeping regular backups, you ensure that you have a way to bring your website back without having to rebuild it from scratch.
Domain Name System, or DNS, is the backbone of your online presence. Every domain name uses DNS to control how visitors find your website and how you receive the email. You can think of your domain name as a street address, and DNS acts as your GPS. Visitors won't be able to find your address if the GPS isn't able to provide the correct directions. This means that if your DNS isn't correct, your website and email won't work the way they should. When you type in a domain name in your internet browser, DNS works to find the information for that domain. Domains are a friendly way for us to remember how to get to a website, but underneath that friendly name, computers talk to each other using numbers. These numbers form Internet Protocol, or IP addresses, which act as the street address of your website working under your domain name. When you type a domain name in your address bar to visit a website, your computer is looking for the IP address of that website so it can load the website for you. This is DNS in action — you type in the street address (the domain name), DNS finds the directions using IP address (the GPS), and the internet loads the website you're visiting. In order to get you to your destination, DNS contains three main pieces to work properly: nameservers, zone files, and records. Nameservers hold the zone file and the zone file holds the records. The records are the part of DNS that explains where your website lives or where you get your email, using IP addresses, but the records won't work if the nameservers aren't set up correctly.
When a domain is registered, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or ICANN, requires us to gather contact information for the person or business registering the domain name, known as the registrant or domain holder. This information includes name, phone number, address, and other details, which are reported on the WHOIS directory. Keeping your domain contact information private helps prevent unwanted spam calls and emails, and makes sure you're in control of what information is publicly available. But it's not just about keeping your personal information private, either. We want to help you protect your domain and your entire online presence.
Yes. You can register domain names before you find a hosting provider, and, in fact, you are not required to host a domain name. When you register a domain name with us, we automatically park it. A temporary, parked page displays when visitors type the domain name into their browser's address bar. The parked page indicates you are reserving the site.
Picking the perfect domain name is a crucial step in your online adventure. If you have an idea to get online or a great name for your website, we recommend registering the domain immediately before anyone else does. Your domain will be used for your website and email and establishes your online identity. A great domain can also increase branding, marketing, and communication opportunities. Search for your domain on Melon Canary's homepage in the domain search field. When you find the domain you want and it's available to register, add it to the cart and complete checkout. Some domain names may come back with a price higher than expected. These domains are known as premium domains, and they are considered valuable domain real estate. Premium domains might be more expensive, but the benefits often make up for the initial cost investment. If the domain you requested is already registered, we provide available alternative spelling and extensions. For example, you might be able to select a .info or .net extension, rather than .com. Or you can review domains with extensions unique to your idea, such as .studio or .design.
You can transfer your domain to Melon Canary from another registrar. You'll need to prepare your domain name at your current registrar before completing the steps with Melon Canary. If your domain is already registered with Melon Canary, you can move your domain to another Melon Canary account.

The quick answer is no. One dedicated IP address for your VPS works for: Multiple SSL certificates. Your server supports Server Name Indication (SNI), which means you don't need one dedicated IP address for each SSL certificate on the server.
Search engine optimization (SEO). A single IP address doesn't affect the SEO for any of the websites on your server. Just make sure each site has its own directory on the server.
Site previews. Your customers can preview their websites using the same IP address as long as you've configured cPanel or Plesk properly.
