All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a unique number called an IP address, for example If you have a site, the domain name that you type in order to open it is for your convenience, however the server where the website files are still has an IP address. Due to the fact that there're far more sites and devices than there're IP addresses, all of the shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you will be able to get a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you will have superior search engine positions because a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading website. Last but not least, you need such an IP when you intend to obtain an SSL certificate for your site and secure the information that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting
With a cloud website hosting account on our cloud platform, you'll be able to buy a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks wherever your account is - in the United States, the UK or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains section of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are assigned to. In case you want to use an SSL certificate so as to protect the info of your site visitors and you obtain it through our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not need to do 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 address - a discussion board where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.
