All devices on the World Wide Web are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, such as If you have a site, the domain that you type in order to load it is for your convenience, however the server where the site files are still has an IP. Because there are far more sites and devices than there're IPs, all of the shared web hosting servers have a number of websites under the very same IP, while when you use a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you will be able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you will get far better search engine rankings since a dedicated IP generally means a quicker loading website. What is more, you need such an IP when you intend to purchase an SSL certificate for your site and shield the data that visitors submit on it.

If you wish to use an SSL certificate so as to secure the information of your visitors and you obtain it from our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion board where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.
