If you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - an exclusive number which is used to identify a device connected to the Internet. The domain name which you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there're a lot more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use a single IP for many different websites even in case they are owned by several users. Even though this doesn't affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a certain site, granting it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to protect the payment or login details that your website visitors submit, you need an IP alongside the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting
If you host your websites on our reliable cloud platform and you have a web hosting plan, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any moment and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. The aforementioned option is accessible in all the data centers where we provide services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so irrespective of your choice during the registration process, you will be able to acquire a dedicated IP address for your websites. You will be able to 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 may activate the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard then our system will request & assign the IP before it sets up your certificate automatically. Our adaptable platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP for a number of sites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Because you are able to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all our plans come with three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you want to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you can use the IPs which we supply absolutely free. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you've registered with us or elsewhere then employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you manage a website hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone provider. When you need more IPs than the three the packages provide you with, you're able to get extra ones in increments of three either throughout the signup process or through your billing Control Panel at any time.
