All devices on the Internet are recognized by a unique number called an IP address, for instance In case you have a website, the domain that you type in order to load it is to save you time, however the server where the site files are still has an IP. Because there're many more websites and devices than there are IPs, 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'll be able to get a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you may get far better search engine positions because a dedicated IP generally means a quicker loading site. Last but not least, you need such an IP in case you plan to buy an SSL certificate for your website and protect the info that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
If you use any of our cloud hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP to your account in no time and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have picked for your account during the signup process, which means that you'll be able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can modify each domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from us, you can use our auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you want to use them.
