If you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a unique number which is used to identify any kind of device connected to the Internet. The domain name which you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Since there're a lot more websites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for multiple sites even if they belong to several users. Even though this does not affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a particular site, providing it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you wish to secure the payment or login info that your site visitors submit, you need an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

If you use any of our cloud hosting packages, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account with ease and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've picked for the account during the sign-up process, therefore you will be able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. 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 since you can adjust each and every domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL from our company, you're able to use our auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you wish to use them.
