All devices on the Internet are identified by a special number called an IP address, such as When you have a site, the domain name that you enter to be able to load it is for your convenience, but the server where your website files are still has an IP. Considering that there're a lot more websites and devices than there are IPs, all the shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under the same IP, while when you use a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you'll enjoy far better search engine rankings as a dedicated IP usually means a quicker loading site. What's more, you need such an IP when you plan to acquire an SSL certificate for your website and shield the info that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

With a shared web hosting account on our cloud platform, you'll be able to acquire a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks regardless of where your account is - in the United States, Britain or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains part of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're allotted to. In case you wish to use an SSL certificate so as to secure the info of your site visitors and you get it through our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't be required to anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a community forum where users can share their opinion about your services, for example.
