All devices on the Web are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, for instance 123.123.123.123. When you have a website, the domain name that you type to open it is to save you time, but the server where your site files are still has an IP address. Considering that there're many more sites and devices than there're IPs, all the shared hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, whereas using a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you're able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you may enjoy superior search engine positions because a dedicated IP usually means a quicker loading site. Furthermore, you need such an IP in case you want to purchase an SSL certificate for your website and protect the info that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

In case you host your websites on our outstanding cloud platform and you have a cloud hosting plan, you are 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 accessible in all the data centers where we provide services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so whatever your choice during the registration process, you can obtain a dedicated IP for your sites. You'll 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 obtain will be used for an SSL certificate, you may activate the automatic configuration attribute in our SSL order wizard and then our system will request and assign the IP before it installs the certificate automatically. Our versatile platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP address for multiple websites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.
