If you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - a special number that is used to identify a device connected to the Web. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there are many more websites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for multiple sites even in case they belong to several users. Even though this doesn't affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a given site, granting it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you want to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors type in, you should have an IP together with the SSL.

Our versatile platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP address for a number of sites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.
