All devices on the Internet are identified by a specific number called an IP address, for instance When you have a website, the domain name that you enter to be able to load it is for your convenience, but the server where your site files are still has an IP. As there are far more websites and devices than there're IP addresses, all shared hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, while using a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you'll be able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you will get better search engine rankings because a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading site. In addition, you need such an IP if you want to purchase an SSL certificate for your site and protect the info that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Hosting

When you use some of our hosting packages, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've picked for the account during the signup process, therefore it is possible to 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, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can adjust each and every domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from us, you can use our auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you would like to use them.
