All devices on the Internet are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, for instance 123.123.123.123. In case you have a site, the domain name that you type in order to load it is for your convenience, yet the server where your website files are still has an IP. As there are a lot more sites and devices than there're IP addresses, all the shared hosting servers have a number of websites under the same IP, while using a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you'll be able to get a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you will get better search engine positions since a dedicated IP usually means a quicker loading website. In addition, you need such an IP in case you would like to obtain an SSL certificate for your site and shield the data that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
If you host your websites on our outstanding cloud platform and you have a cloud hosting plan, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only 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 get a dedicated IP address for your sites. You can 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 obtain will be used for an SSL certificate, you could enable the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard then our system will request & assign the IP before it sets up the certificate automatically. Our flexible platform will allow 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 VPS Servers
If you get a VPS server from our company, you'll get a dedicated IP address by default and an additional one when you get a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You'll be able to use the IP addresses for any purpose - a site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you are able to use to point to your VPS any website which you want to host. You can also add more dedicated IPs to your VPS account when you need them. This can be done via the billing Control Panel that you'll receive so as to manage renewals, upgrade purchases and domain name registrations and it will take no more than a few clicks. After you upload your order, the additional IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you will be able to use them the way you like.
