All devices on the Internet are identified by a specific number called an IP address, for instance 123.123.123.123. If you have a site, the domain name that you type in order to access it is to save you time, but the server where the site files are still has an IP. Considering that there are far more sites and devices than there are IP addresses, all the shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, whereas with a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you can obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you will enjoy improved search engine rankings because a dedicated IP generally means a quicker loading site. In addition, you need such an IP if you intend to acquire an SSL certificate for your website and shield the information that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting

When you use some of our cloud web hosting packages, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account with ease and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have chosen for your account throughout the registration process, which means that you will be able to take 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 instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can modify each and every domain or subdomain independently through 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 our company, you can 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.
