When you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that's used to distinguish any device connected to the Net. The domain name which you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there're many more websites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for several sites even if they belong to several users. Even though this does not affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a given website, granting it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you want to secure the payment or login details that your website visitors type in, you need an IP along with the SSL.

If you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you will be able to select everything to be installed automatically.

In addition, you can get extra dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones which come with your plan. You can buy the IPs in groups of three and they shall be added to your dedicated server right after you send your order, which means that you can start using them without delays.
