All devices on the Internet are recognized by a special number called an IP address, such as 123.123.123.123. In case you have a site, the domain name that you type in order to open it is to save you time, however the server where your website files are still has an IP. Since there are many more sites and devices than there are IP addresses, all shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, while 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 websites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you will have better search engine rankings since a dedicated IP usually means a quicker loading website. What is more, you need such an IP when you would like to purchase an SSL certificate for your site and secure the data that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

We supply dedicated IP addresses with all of our shared website hosting plans irrespective of the data center location and you can acquire one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will show up inside your account and you'll be able to request, delete or view your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You're able to choose what number of domains or subdomains will use a particular IP since you can assign one with a few clicks to any hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be the main site, that uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer goods or services on the web and it could have a dedicated IP combined with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP that a site uses from the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set some of your sites to use a single dedicated IP provided that there is no SSL set up for it.
