All devices on the Internet are identified by a unique number called an IP address, for instance 123.123.123.123. If you have a site, the domain that you enter to be able to access it is for your convenience, but the server where the website files are still has an IP address. Due to the fact that there're far more sites and devices than there're IP addresses, all the shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, while when you use a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you will be able to acquire a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you may get better search engine positions as a dedicated IP often means a faster loading website. Last but not least, you need such an IP if you plan to acquire an SSL certificate for your site and protect the info that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

In case you host your sites on our advanced cloud platform and you have a web hosting package, you are able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This option is accessible in all of the data centers where we offer services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so whatever your choice throughout the registration process, you are able to acquire 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. If any of the IPs that you purchase will be used for an SSL certificate, you may activate the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard 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 various sites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.
