If you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - a unique number that's used to detect any kind of device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there're a lot more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for a number of sites even if they belong to different users. Even though this does not affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a particular site, giving it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you wish to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors submit, you need an IP alongside the SSL.

If you host your websites on our reliable cloud platform and you have a shared website hosting plan, you're able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any moment and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. The aforementioned option is available in all the data center facilities where we supply services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so whatever your choice throughout the registration process, you can get a dedicated IP address for your sites. You can add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. If any of the IPs that you obtain will be used for an SSL certificate, you could enable the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and then our system will request and assign the IP before it installs your certificate automatically. Our adaptable platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP address for various sites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

If you acquire a dedicated server, you probably want to run some web app or host numerous Internet sites, so we supply 3 dedicated IP addresses at no charge with every single package and you are able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain which you've registered here or from another company. The last mentioned option is very helpful in case you use your dedicated server to host users' websites because it'll give you trustworthiness and anonymity as a hosting company. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add more IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, so you can go ahead and take advantage of the brand new dedicated IP addresses just a few minutes after you send your order.
