A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the world wide web that is allotted to a device or a website. Shared web hosting servers usually have a number of websites under a single IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs that aren't shared with anyone else. Even if you use a common shared account, however, it's possible to get a dedicated IP address that will be used just by your sites - one or a few. As this can add up to the speed of awebsite, it is more likely that the website will get improved search engine result positions. Of course, this is not the sole factor, but it is likely to help you get more visitors and prospective clients. The dedicated IP is also needed if you intend to secure the information exchanged between the site and its visitors by using an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting

If you host your websites on our advanced cloud platform and you have a website 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. The aforementioned option is accessible in all of the data centers where we offer services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice during the registration process, you can get a dedicated IP address for your sites. 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 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 for various sites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Since it's possible to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all of our packages feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you wish to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs that we provide free of charge. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you have registered through our company or elsewhere then employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you manage a hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent supplier. In case you need more IP addresses than the three the plans provide you with, you will be able to purchase extra ones in increments of 3 either throughout the signup process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
