All devices on the Internet are identified by a specific number called an IP address, for instance 123.123.123.123. In case you have a website, the domain name that you enter in order to access it is for your convenience, however the server where your site files are still has an IP address. As there are a lot more websites and devices than there're IP addresses, all shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under the very same IP, whereas using a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you're able to acquire a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you will enjoy superior search engine rankings as a dedicated IP usually means a quicker loading website. Furthermore, you need such an IP in case you intend to get an SSL certificate for your website and protect the data that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting
When you use any of our web hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP to your account without any difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've picked for your account throughout the registration process, therefore you are able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each and every domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL through our company, you are able to use our auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you wish to use them.

In the same place you can also view what IP is used by each and every domain or subdomain, an index of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what website they are assigned to? In case the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you can take full advantage of our user-friendly SSL wizard that will make the whole process super easy as it'll request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and after that install the SSL without the need of any action on your side aside from placing the order.
