When you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - an exclusive number which is used to distinguish every device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name that you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there are a lot more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for many different websites even in case they are owned by different users. While this doesn't affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a particular website, giving it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you plan to protect the payment or login information that your site visitors type in, you'll need an IP along with the SSL.

In case you host your websites on our reliable cloud platform and you have a shared hosting package, you will be 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. This option is available in all data centers where we supply services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so whatever your choice during the registration process, you're able to obtain a dedicated IP address for your sites. You'll be able to add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. If any of the IPs that you acquire will be used for an SSL certificate, you could enable the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard then our system will request and assign the IP before it sets up your certificate automatically. Our flexible platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP address for multiple websites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.
