Yes, you can order a Dedicated IP if you have Shared Hosting or Reseller Hosting with us if absolutely necessary. While we provide 2 IPs with VPS Hosting and Dedicated Server Hosting; with shared hosting, you share the server IP. In most scenarios, this is sufficient; but if you are installing and using an SSL certificate for use on your website, you’ll need to buy an Dedicated IP alongside an SSL certificate.
What is a Dedicated IP?
When you buy shared web hosting, your account shares the Dedicated IP of the server in which your account is hosted on. However, if you require a Dedicated IP for a specific reason – whether for SEO purposes or because you need to use an SSL certificate; for example in the case you run an e-commerce store – you’ll need to buy a Dedicated IP in order to buy and use an SSL certificate.
How much do Dedicated IPs cost?
A Dedicated IP costs £20.00 per year. The reason you have to pay for Dedicated IPs on an annual basis is to ensure those that have Dedicated IPs allocated actually need them. You will need to justify each Dedicated IP you require.
How long does it take for my order to be processed as soon as I purchase a Dedicated IP?
Our sales team work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so you should expect your order to be processed by our sales team usually within a few hours after ordering.
