If you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a unique number which is used to detect any device connected to the Net. The domain name which you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there are a lot more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for a variety of sites even if they are owned by separate users. Even though this does not affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a particular website, granting it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you would like to secure the payment or login info that your site visitors enter, you should have an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting

When you use a website hosting account on our cloud platform, you can get a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks regardless of where your account is - in the US, Great Britain or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains section of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're assigned to. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the info of your visitors and you acquire it through our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not 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 address - a community forum where users can share opinions about your services, for instance.
