When you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a special number that is used to distinguish any kind of device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name which you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there are many more sites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for a variety of sites even if they belong to several users. While this doesn't affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a website, providing it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you plan to protect the payment or login details that your website visitors enter, you will need an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting

When you use a website hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks wherever your account is - in the US, Britain or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains area of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're assigned to. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate to secure the information of your visitors and you acquire it from our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't have to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion forum where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for example.
