If you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that's used to distinguish every device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there are a lot more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for several sites even in case they are owned by separate users. While this does not affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a certain website, granting it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you wish to secure the payment or login details that your site visitors enter, you should have an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

When you use some of our web hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account without 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 chosen for the account throughout the registration process, thus it's possible to use 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, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can modify each domain or subdomain individually from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL through us, you'll be able to use our auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you want to use them.
