If you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a unique number which is used to distinguish any kind of device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there're far more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for several sites even in case they belong to several users. Even though this does not affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a site, providing it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you plan to secure the payment or login data that your website visitors submit, you should have an IP alongside the SSL.

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