All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a specific number called an IP address, for example 123.123.123.123. If you have a site, the domain name that you type to access it is to save you time, but the server where the website files are still has an IP address. Since there are far more sites and devices than there are IP addresses, all shared website 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 will be able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you may enjoy improved search engine positions because a dedicated IP generally means a quicker loading site. Also, you need such an IP if you intend to purchase an SSL certificate for your website and shield the information that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

If you use any of our web 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 just a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have selected for the account during the signup process, thus you are able to take 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 example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can edit each domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL from our company, you can use our auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you wish to use them.
