If you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a special number that's used to identify every device connected to the Web. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Since there are a lot more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for several websites even in case they belong to separate users. Even though this does not affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a given site, granting it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to protect the payment or login information that your website visitors type in, you need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

If you host your sites on our advanced cloud platform and you have a cloud hosting plan, you're able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only a few clicks. This option is accessible in all of the data center facilities where we supply services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so whatever your choice throughout the registration process, you're able to get a dedicated IP for your sites. 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 obtain will be used for an SSL certificate, you could activate the automatic configuration attribute in our SSL order wizard then our system will request & assign the IP before it installs the certificate automatically. Our flexible platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP address for a variety of sites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.
