All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a unique number called an IP address, for instance 123.123.123.123. When you have a website, the domain that you enter to access it is to save you time, however the server where the website files are still has an IP. Due to the fact that there are many more websites and devices than there're IPs, all of the shared hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, while when you use a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you'll be able to acquire a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you may enjoy far better search engine rankings since a dedicated IP usually means a quicker loading website. What's more, you need such an IP in case you plan to purchase an SSL certificate for your site and shield the data that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
When you use a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to acquire a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks no matter where your account is - in the USA, the UK or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains section of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're assigned to. In case you want to use an SSL certificate to protect the info of your site visitors and you acquire it through our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a community forum where users can share opinions about your services, for example.
