If you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to detect any device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there're many more websites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for many different sites even in case they belong to different users. While this doesn't affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a particular site, providing it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you wish to secure the payment or login data that your site visitors enter, you will need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting

When you use any of our cloud web hosting packages, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account in no time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've picked for your account during the sign-up process, so you can 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 adjust each domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL through us, you are able to use our auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you want to use them.
