What is a Perfect IP? Does it need to be hosted in country that your website is putting on? or we should choose an IP address depending on where the audience we are targeting to? finally it should be a IPv4 address to be a Perfect IP?

Hello,

in my opinon, IP do not have any impact on the website running on it. Why ?

Here some reasons :

- Website hosted on shared hosting plan are using the same IP (sometimes 10k websites / IP)
- Websites which used Cloudflare share an IP (located in with thousands of other websites
- You can get an IP from UK or Poland and configure it on a server running in France

So, for me, the most important is to support IPv4 + IPv6.

Your Ip doesn't have impact over your site, but it can be important if someone tries to restrict you to see something or use a feature.

There's really a lot of information and mis-information about the impact of an IP address and your website.

In regards to SEO ranking it is 99.99% a myth. At least when it applies to google. Your biggest consideration for IP's shouldn't necessarily be about your web traffic and audience, but emails. If that IP is going to be sending emails then yes the reputation of not only that IP, but your neighbors IP's may come into play impacting your email deliverability.

So if my website is targeting for US audience and my hosting server is hosted in US. I buy an IP address in France, that will not matter?

Thanks for piece of this information, to be honest I thought if I want to build SEO backlinks (internal links) between my websites then they should have different IP address. In the case I use Cloudflare, I don't need to have separated IP for each website? and each website should be putted on different hosting servers, that will be better?

In 99% cases, the server provider gives random IP address and it comes together with hosting service. Also, take in mind that not all of the service providers allows to come with your own IP address and only allows to use IP from the providers IP pool.

or we should choose an IP address depending on where the audience we are targeting to?
This is important in terms of website performance. That means if your targeted visitors are from US, choose US hosting instead of EU. That can help to increase website performance and appears faster for visitors.

The IP address is important primarily for email hosting. It has little effect for web hosting. You'll want to have a clean IP address assigned to your mail servers to ensure message deliverability.

While it's easy to tell where each IP address is located geographically, through any number of free online resources, the IPs can easily be hosted in a completely separate location from their original assignment. IPv4 announcement is a common practice due to growing IPv4 scarcity and increased justification requirements (for obtaining additional IPs).

For example, APNIC and RIPE IP assignments are commonly hosted in our Dallas facility by other tenants. This would lead me to believe there is little to no benefit in obtaining a particular IP address for the purpose of hosting websites.
