All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a special number called an IP address, for instance When you have a site, the domain name that you enter to be able to open it is to save you time, but the server where the website files are still has an IP address. As there're many more websites and devices than there're IPs, all shared hosting servers have a number of sites under the very same IP, whereas using a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP as well. 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 may enjoy improved search engine positions because a dedicated IP often means a faster loading website. What is more, you need such an IP when you want to purchase an SSL certificate for your website and shield the info that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
If you use some of our shared hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP to your account without any difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've selected for your account throughout the registration process, therefore you're able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can modify each and every domain or subdomain individually from the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through us, you can use our auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you want to use them.
