In this article we’ll help you figure out whether a dedicated IP or a shared IP is better for your needs. To help you choose, let’s first take a look at how IP addresses work.

After you type “www.yourwebsite.com” into your web browser and hit enter, the browser checks to see if it has any memory of visiting that domain. If not, it asks the internet service provider, “What is the address for www.yourwebsite.com?” This is similar to when you look up an address in the phonebook.

After all, data zips across the Internet so quickly, so does location matter anymore? Shared or VPS Hosting customers may not need quite as much out of their hosting plans.

wordcamp-logo

WordCamp Baltimore was my first traveling foray into the world of WordPress enthusiast user groups. I’ve been to many conventions and helped to host user groups, but WordCamps are in a class all their own.  WordCamps are held worldwide and can vary from a small group of people to a large group numbering in the thousands.  This Baltimore trip was more in the size of a smaller group but it was still a great event to attend.
