    I have created tons of articles to put on an authority site that I am planning. Now it is time to purchase hosting. Is a dedicated IP address worth it?

    Do you mean a dedicated IP address for the WhoIs data? If you mean a dedicated server, totally if you plan on going big.
    Congrats on making it happen Woozy!

    Unless your planning to use SSL then no you probably dont need it.

    You do not need a dedicated IP and you do not want one! Leaves too much of a footprint for certain reasons. Better to have a shared host.

    Thank you guys! I am talking about a dedicated IP address. When it comes time for a dedicated server, I will get one. There is no point in spending my limited funds if I am only getting 300 clicks a day.

    Exactly, you can always get it later anyway. But if your wondering if it affects SEO, then no it doesn't in any way.
