All devices on the World Wide Web are recognized by a unique number called an IP address, for example If you have a website, the domain name that you type to load it is to save you time, but the server where the website files are still has an IP address. Since there are many more websites and devices than there are IPs, all of the shared web hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, while using a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you will be able to obtain a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you'll have superior search engine rankings since a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading website. Last but not least, you need such an IP when you would like to get an SSL certificate for your site and shield the data that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting

If you use some of our cloud website hosting packages, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have selected for the 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 website, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can edit each and every domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from us, you're able to use our auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you wish to use them.
