All devices on the Web are recognized by a unique number called an IP address, such as 123.123.123.123. In case you have a website, the domain that you enter to be able to load it is for your convenience, but the server where the site files are still has an IP. Because there're a lot more sites and devices than there're IP addresses, all of the shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, whereas with a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you will be able to get a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you'll enjoy superior search engine positions because a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading site. In addition, you need such an IP when you would like to acquire an SSL certificate for your website and secure the info that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

If you host your websites on our cutting-edge cloud platform and you have a cloud hosting plan, you are 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 accessible in all of the data centers where we offer services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice during the registration process, you will be able to get a dedicated IP address for your sites. You will be able to 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 acquire will be used for an SSL certificate, you may enable the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and our system will request and assign the IP before it sets up the certificate automatically. Our flexible platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP address for multiple websites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.
