A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the net that is assigned to a device or a site. Shared web hosting servers usually have a multitude of sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs that are not shared with anybody else. Even if you use a standard shared account, however, you can buy a dedicated IP address that will be used just by your websites - one or a few. Considering that this can contribute to the speed of yourwebsite, it is much more likely that the website will get improved search engine result positions. Certainly, this is not the sole factor, but it is likely to help you have more site visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also needed when you'd like to secure the information exchanged between the website and its visitors with an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
In case you host your websites on our advanced cloud platform and you have a shared website hosting package, you can add a dedicated IP to your account at any moment and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This option is accessible in all of the data center facilities where we supply services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so whatever your choice during the registration process, you're able to get a dedicated IP address for your sites. You will 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 buy will be used for an SSL certificate, you may enable the automatic configuration attribute in our SSL order wizard and our system will request and assign the IP before it installs your certificate automatically. Our flexible platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP address for a variety of sites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All the dedicated servers that we offer have three dedicated IP addresses as standard and free of charge. You're able to employ them for any kind of purpose based on the content that you have on your server - an online game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your customers may use to direct domain names to their hosting accounts, and much more. In addition, you can buy additional dedicated IP addresses from the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with your server. You are able to purchase the IPs in groups of three and they will be added to your dedicated server shortly after you submit your order, so that you can use them without delays.
