I have a shared hosting account with HostGator. Is there any advantage for me to get a dedicated IP with my shared hosting account...Does that help the efficiency of my Backup Buddy backups, in any way?

Hi Cj,

A dedicated IP is not the same as a dedicated server but I don't really know much about them. It comes down to the server's capabilities and restrictions like max_execution_time.

Welcome to the forums. Be sure to post your questions in the correct forum and don't forget about the new and improved search function located in the top right of the forum pages. The gear/wheel symbol next to the search box will give you more options for advanced searching. Thank you and have a nice day.
