All devices on the World Wide Web are recognized by a unique number called an IP address, for example 123.123.123.123. If you have a website, the domain name that you type in order to load it is to save you time, however the server where your website files are still has an IP address. Considering that there are a lot more websites and devices than there are IP addresses, all the shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under the very same IP, whereas with a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you will have better search engine rankings since a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading site. What's more, you need such an IP when you intend to obtain an SSL certificate for your website and secure the info that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting

When you use any of our website hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account without any difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have picked for the account during the sign-up process, which means that you are able to take full 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, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can edit each and every domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from our company, you'll be able to use our auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you would like to use them.
