When you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - a unique number which is used to identify every device connected to the Net. The website name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. As there are a lot more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for several websites even if they are owned by separate users. While this doesn't affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a website, giving it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you plan to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors submit, you need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

We provide you with dedicated IP addresses with all our Linux web hosting irrespective of the data center location and you will be able to purchase one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will show up inside your account and you'll be able to request, view or delete your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You can choose what number of sites or subdomains will use a certain IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to any hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be the main website, which uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer services or goods online and it could have a dedicated IP address together with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a website uses through the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set some of your websites to use the same dedicated IP given that there is no SSL set up for it.
