All devices on the World Wide Web are recognized by a unique number called an IP address, for example 123.123.123.123. When you have a site, the domain that you enter in order to load it is for your convenience, yet the server where the site files are still has an IP. Considering that there are many more websites and devices than there're IP addresses, all shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under the very same IP, while with a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you're able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you will enjoy improved search engine positions as a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading website. Last but not least, you need such an IP in case you want to get an SSL certificate for your website and secure the information that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

When you use some of our cloud hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've chosen for the account throughout the sign-up process, so you can use 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 modify each domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL from us, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you would like to use them.
