All devices on the Web are identified by a unique number called an IP address, such as In case you have a site, the domain that you type to open it is for your convenience, yet the server where the site files are still has an IP. As there are many more sites and devices than there are IPs, all shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, whereas using a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you are able to acquire a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you will enjoy better search engine rankings because a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading site. Last but not least, you need such an IP in case you intend to obtain an SSL certificate for your site and secure the info that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

When you use some of our web hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have chosen for your account during the sign-up process, so you can 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 instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each and every domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from our company, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you'd like to use them.
