How to Purchase a Dedicated IP

To purchase a Dedicated IP:
  1. Log in to your Bluehost cPanel account.
  2. Click on the Addons tab at the top of the screen.
  3. Select either Server Resources to limit the options or scroll down to Dedicated IP and select Add to cart.
  4. Select your payment method.
  5. The credit card on file is the default payment method. If this is the card you wish to use, enter the CVV2 code to proceed.
    • If you wish to use another payment method, click the “Change Payment Method” link. Select to use a new credit card or your PayPal account, and follow the directions on screen.
Note: Because of the IP address change you may experience a period of about 6-24 hours where your site can appear to be non-functional. This is the standard propagation time that is required to update your DNS throughout the world. Please note, your Temporary URL will also be changed and will be unavailable while the Dedicated IP is installed on your account. This is normal and you will be able to view your site by visiting your site using your new Dedicated IP within 4-24 hours.
