All devices on the Web are identified by a specific number called an IP address, for instance If you have a site, the domain name that you type to be able to open it is to save you time, however the server where the website files are still has an IP address. Since there are far more websites and devices than there are IP addresses, all of the shared hosting servers have a number of websites under the same IP, while when you use a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you'll be able to acquire a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you may enjoy superior search engine positions because a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading website. Furthermore, you need such an IP if you would like to get an SSL certificate for your site and protect the information that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

If you host your sites on our up-to-date cloud platform and you have a shared website hosting plan, you're able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This option is available in all of the data center facilities where we provide services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice during the registration process, you'll be able to get 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. In case any of the IPs that you acquire will be used for an SSL certificate, you may enable the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and then our system will request and assign the IP before it sets up the certificate automatically. Our adaptable platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP for multiple websites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.

In case you want to use an SSL certificate on some of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you send your order, so you don't have to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

If you buy a VPS server from us, you'll have a dedicated IP address as standard and a second one when you obtain a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IP addresses for any kind of purpose - a website, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you'll be able to use to point to your VPS any domain name which you would like to host. You can also add more dedicated IPs to your VPS account if you need them. This can be done from the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain so as to control renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it will take only a few clicks. After you post your order, the extra IP addresses will be accessible, so you'll be able to use them the way you like.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All of the dedicated web hosting plans that we offer have 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and cost-free. You'll be able to use them for any kind of purpose according to the content that you have on the server - a video game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your customers can use to redirect domain names to their website hosting accounts, and many more. You will also be able to obtain more 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're able to purchase the IPs in groups of three and they will be added to your dedicated server shortly after you submit your order, which means that you can use them without any delays.
