If you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - a unique number that is used to identify every device connected to the Net. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there are a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for a variety of websites even if they belong to several users. While this does not affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a site, giving it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you would like to secure the payment or login information that your website visitors enter, you need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

Using a web hosting account on our cloud platform, you can obtain a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the US, the UK or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains section of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're allotted to. When you wish to use an SSL certificate so as to protect the information of your site visitors and you acquire it from us, our system will 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 can still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a community forum where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for instance.
