What is Name Based Hosting? Do I need an IP for each domain on my Server?

Name based hosting is a method used to allow a server to host multiple domains with only one IP address. You do not need an IP address for each site; in fact, you only need one IP for the entire server. Name based hosting does not affect the performance or appearance of the domains hosted. It's also a good way to economize on IP usage. Most Virtual accounts are name based hosted. Dedicated offer both IP and Name Based. In the event you require a specific IP, they are available for a small fee.
