Dedicated IP Domain
A domain with a dedicated IP address is the only one with that IP address. Since it has its own IP address, you have access anytime you need it. You can even get to the site by typing in the IP address instead of the URL.
A dedicated IP address can handle more traffic because it has more resources devoted to it. It can also potentially boost your SEO. One of Google’s ranking factors is page load speed, so if your site is slowed down by traffic, switching to a dedicated IP address may boost your site ranking.
Shared IP Domain
Shared IP hosting shares the IP address of your already-established dedicated IP domain with another domain. When you don’t need to take full advantage of a dedicated IP, a shared IP can be useful.
Parked IP Domain
Parked domains will automatically redirect traffic to the domain name they are parked on.
For example, if you park the domain name example1.net on the domain example2.com, users visiting example1.net/about.html will see the page for example2.com/about.html.
This is a great option for websites that are in the middle of construction. Until they are ready for viewing, the parked domain will direct traffic to the other domain name. Once the parked domain is finished, it can be switched to another domain type and visitors will be able to see it.
