When you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a special number which is used to identify any device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there are a lot more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for a variety of websites even in case they belong to different users. While this does not affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a particular site, granting it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you plan to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors enter, you should have an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you host your websites on our outstanding cloud platform and you have a cloud website hosting package, you'll be 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 available in all of the data center facilities where we supply services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice during the registration process, you're able to acquire a dedicated IP for your websites. You'll be able to 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 buy will be used for an SSL certificate, you can activate the automatic configuration attribute in our SSL order wizard and then our system will request & assign the IP before it sets up the certificate automatically. Our adaptable platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP address for multiple sites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

As all our dedicated web hosting plans feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included in the plans as standard, we will give you a serious advantage if you wish to run any app which requires such an IP. We provide them at zero cost and you'll be able to use them for as long as you use the server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain name which you host, an SSL certificate for any website on the server, a software server (online games, VOIP), etc. Through the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll get to control renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you will also be able to order more dedicated IPs in sets of three at any time. They will be assigned to your server within a few minutes, so you can start using them for your sites and web-based applications without delay.
