A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the Internet that is assigned to a device or a site. Shared web hosting servers usually have a multitude of sites under the very same IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs which aren't shared with anyone else. Even when you use a common shared account, however, you will be able to acquire a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your websites - one or a few. Because this can contribute to the speed of yourwebsite, it's much more likely that the website will get improved search engine result positions. Of course, that isn't the only factor, but it can help you find more site visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also required if you intend to encrypt the info exchanged between a site and its visitors with an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
If you host your sites on our state-of-the-art cloud platform and you have a cloud hosting package, you can add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only a few clicks. The aforementioned option is available in all of the data centers where we offer services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice throughout the registration process, you're able to acquire a dedicated IP for your sites. You can add / 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 can activate the automatic configuration attribute in our SSL order wizard and then 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 address for multiple websites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers come with one dedicated IP as standard and in case you pick a web hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, Hepsia, cPanel) during the signup process, you'll obtain a second one too free of cost. You are able to employ them the way you like - to access online content, to run a web app, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain that you have and use the latter for any other website that you wish to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you will be able to control all of the plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain name registrations will enable you to order more dedicated IP addresses when you need them for any purpose. Just a couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them without delay.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
In case you need a dedicated server, you probably would like to run some web application or host a lot of sites, so we supply three dedicated IPs for free with each and every plan and you are able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain which you've registered here or through another company. The last option is very useful in case you use the dedicated server to host clients' sites because it will give you credibility and anonymity as a hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add additional IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes just a few clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you are able to go ahead and start using the brand new dedicated IP addresses several minutes after you submit your order.
