If you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - an exclusive number which is used to distinguish any kind of device connected to the Internet. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there're a lot more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for many different sites even if they belong to separate users. While this does not affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a particular website, giving it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you wish to secure the payment or login information that your website visitors enter, you'll need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

If you host your websites on our innovative cloud platform and you have a shared hosting package, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only a couple of clicks. The aforementioned option is available in all data center facilities where we offer services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so irrespective of your choice throughout the registration process, you will be able to get a dedicated IP for your websites. You can add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any moment. In case any of the IPs that you buy will be used for an SSL certificate, you can activate the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and then our system will request & assign the IP before it sets up the certificate automatically. Our flexible platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP for a variety of sites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All the dedicated servers that we offer include three dedicated IP addresses as standard and for free. You'll be able to employ them for any type of purpose according to the content that you have on your server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your customers can use to direct domains to their hosting accounts, and much more. In addition, you can obtain more dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones which come with your server. You're able to obtain the IPs in sets of three and they will be added to your dedicated server right after you submit your order, so you can start using them without any delays.
