All devices on the Web are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, for instance 123.123.123.123. If you have a site, the domain that you type to be able to open it is for your convenience, yet the server where the site files are still has an IP address. As there're many 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 using a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you may enjoy superior search engine positions as a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading site. What is more, you need such an IP in case you want to buy an SSL certificate for your site and secure the info that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

If you use some of our cloud hosting packages, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without any difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've chosen for your account throughout the sign-up process, thus you'll be able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can adjust each domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through us, you can use the auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you would like to use them.
