All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a special number called an IP address, such as When you have a site, the domain that you type in order to open it is for your convenience, but the server where the site files are still has an IP address. Because there are far more sites and devices than there are IP addresses, all of the shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, while using a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you are able to get a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you will get superior search engine positions as a dedicated IP usually means a quicker loading site. What's more, you need such an IP when you would like to acquire an SSL certificate for your website and shield the info that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting
When you use some of our cloud website hosting plans, you'll be able to 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've chosen for the account throughout the signup process, therefore you're able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In 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 as you can edit each domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from us, you're 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.
