When you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a special number that's used to detect any kind of device connected to the Internet. The domain name that you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there're far more websites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for a variety of sites even in case they belong to several users. Even though this doesn't affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a given site, granting it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you plan to secure the payment or login information that your site visitors type in, you'll need an IP together with the SSL.

An extra section will appear in your account and you are able to request, view or delete your IPs with several clicks. You are able to select what number of websites or subdomains will use a particular IP as you can assign one with a couple of clicks to any hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be the main site, which uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer goods or services online and it can have a dedicated IP together with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a site uses from the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set some of your sites to use a single dedicated IP given that there is no SSL activated for it.
