All devices on the Web are recognized by a unique number called an IP address, for example When you have a site, the domain name that you enter to access it is for your convenience, yet the server where your site files are still has an IP. Because there're far more websites and devices than there're IP addresses, all shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you can acquire a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you will get improved search engine positions because a dedicated IP usually means a quicker loading site. Furthermore, you need such an IP when you intend to purchase an SSL certificate for your site and protect the info that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
With a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to purchase a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks regardless of where your account is - in the United States, the UK or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains section of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're allotted to. In case you wish to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the information of your site visitors and you acquire it from us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a message board where users can share their opinion about your services, for example.
