All devices on the World Wide Web are recognized by a special number called an IP address, for instance In case you have a website, the domain name that you type to open it is for your convenience, however the server where the website files are still has an IP. Since there are a lot more websites and devices than there are IPs, all shared hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, whereas using a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you're able to acquire a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you may enjoy far better search engine rankings because a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading site. Last but not least, you need such an IP when you want to acquire an SSL certificate for your website and protect the info that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

We offer dedicated IPs with all of our Linux shared web hosting packages irrespective of the data center location and you are able to obtain one or several IPs via your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will show up inside your account and you are able to request, view or delete your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You'll be able to select what number of domains or subdomains will use a given IP as you can assign one with a few clicks to every hostname. To give an example, can be the main website, that uses a server's shared IP, and can be your subdomain where you offer goods or services online and it might have a dedicated IP combined with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a domain uses from the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set a couple of of your websites to use the same dedicated IP as long as there's no SSL set up for it.
