All devices on the Internet are identified by a special number called an IP address, for instance 123.123.123.123. In case you have a site, the domain that you type to be able to access it is to save you time, but the server where the website files are still has an IP address. Considering that there are a lot more websites and devices than there're IPs, all shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, while when you use a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you will be able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you will have superior search engine positions as a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading site. What is more, you need such an IP in case you plan to buy an SSL certificate for your website and shield the data that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

When you use any of our cloud hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account with ease and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've picked for your account during the sign-up process, which means that you are able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can modify each and every domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from us, you're able to use the auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you want to use them.
