All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a specific number called an IP address, such as 123.123.123.123. If you have a website, the domain that you enter to be able to load it is for your convenience, but the server where your site files are still has an IP. Since there're many more websites and devices than there are IPs, all of the shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, whereas with a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you can obtain a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you'll get improved search engine positions as a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading site. Last but not least, you need such an IP if you plan to obtain an SSL certificate for your website and shield the info that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Hosting

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