When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - a special number which is used to distinguish any device connected to the Web. The website name which you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Since there're many more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for a number of sites even in case they are owned by separate users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a website, giving it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you want to secure the payment or login details that your website visitors submit, you should have an IP together with the SSL.

With a shared website hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to obtain a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks wherever your account is - in the United States, the United Kingdom or Australia.
