A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the net which is given to a device or a website. Shared web hosting servers usually have a multitude of sites under a single IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs which aren't shared with anybody else. Even if you use a common shared account, however, you'll be able to buy a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your websites - one or a few. Since this can add up to the speed of asite, it's much more likely that the website will get improved search engine result rankings. Certainly, this isn't the only factor, but it can help you find more visitors and prospective clients. The dedicated IP is also needed if you intend to encode the info exchanged between the website and its visitors using an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

In case you host your websites on our innovative cloud platform and you have a shared website hosting plan, you will 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. The aforementioned option is available in all the data center facilities where we offer services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice throughout the registration process, you're able to get a dedicated IP for your sites. You will be able to add / remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. In case any of the IPs that you purchase will be used for an SSL certificate, you may activate the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and then our system will request and assign the IP before it sets up your certificate automatically. Our adaptable platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP address for various sites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Because it is possible to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our plans come with three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you need to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs which we supply absolutely free. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you have registered through our company or somewhere else and then employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you manage a web hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. In case you need more IP addresses than the three our packages provide you with, you will be able to get additional ones in increments of three either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
