All devices on the World Wide Web are recognized by a special number called an IP address, for instance In case you have a site, the domain name that you enter to load it is for your convenience, yet the server where your site files are still has an IP. Considering that there're far more sites and devices than there're IP addresses, all shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, whereas with a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP too. 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. One benefit would be that you'll enjoy better search engine rankings because a dedicated IP usually means a quicker loading website. Also, you need such an IP when you plan to acquire an SSL certificate for your website and protect the information that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting
When you use a website hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to acquire a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks regardless of where your account is - in the USA, Britain or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains area of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're assigned to. If you want to use an SSL certificate to protect the info of your website visitors and you get it from us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a community forum where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
