All devices on the Internet are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, such as In case you have a site, the domain that you type in order to access it is to save you time, yet the server where your site files are still has an IP. Considering that there are far more sites and devices than there're IPs, all of the shared hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, whereas with a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you'll be able to acquire a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you will have improved search engine rankings since a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading website. In addition, you need such an IP if you would like to purchase an SSL certificate for your site and secure the info that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Hosting

When you use some of our hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP address 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've selected for the account throughout the registration process, thus 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 edit each and every domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from us, you are able to use our auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you want to use them.
