All devices on the Internet are identified by a special number called an IP address, for instance In case you have a website, the domain name that you type to be able to open it is to save you time, but the server where the website files are still has an IP address. Considering that there are far more sites and devices than there are IPs, all the shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you may get superior search engine rankings as a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading site. What's more, you need such an IP if you want to purchase an SSL certificate for your site and protect the data that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

In case you host your websites on our up-to-date cloud platform and you have a cloud hosting plan, you're able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any moment and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only a couple of clicks. The aforementioned option is available in all data center facilities where we offer services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so irrespective of your choice throughout the registration process, you are able to acquire a dedicated IP for your websites. You will be able to add or 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 acquire will be used for an SSL certificate, you can enable 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 various sites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you get a semi-dedicated server account from us, you will get the opportunity to get as many dedicated IPs as you like depending on your business needs.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

As our dedicated web hosting plans come with 3 dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans as standard, we will give you a serious advantage in case you want to run any application that needs this type of an IP. We supply them free of charge and you will be able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain name that you host, an SSL certificate for any website on the server, a software server (online games, VOIP), etc. From the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll get to take care of renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you will also be able to get more dedicated IPs in sets of three whenever you want.
