A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the web that is assigned to a device or a website. Shared web hosting servers usually have a lot of sites under a single IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs which are not shared with others. Even when you use a regular shared account, however, you'll be able to obtain a dedicated IP address that will be in use just by your websites - one or a few. Considering that this can add up to the speed of thewebsite, it's much more likely that the site will get superior search engine result positions. Certainly, that isn't the sole factor, but it can help you have more visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also required if you want to secure the info exchanged between a website and its visitors through an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

If you host your sites on our reliable cloud platform and you have a shared 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. This option is accessible 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 websites. You'll be able to add / 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 installs the certificate automatically. Our adaptable platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP for various websites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

As you'll be able to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all our packages feature three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you wish to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you can use the IPs that we provide for free. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you have registered through us or somewhere else and use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you manage a web hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone provider. When you need more IP addresses than the three our packages include, you're able to buy additional ones in increments of 3 either during the registration process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
