All devices on the Internet are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, such as 123.123.123.123. If you have a website, the domain name that you type to be able to open it is for your convenience, however the server where the site files are still has an IP address. Since there're many more sites and devices than there are IP addresses, all the shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, while when you use a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you are able to get a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you may get superior search engine positions as a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading site. In addition, you need such an IP in case you plan to get an SSL certificate for your site and secure the information that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting

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