All devices on the Web are identified by a specific number called an IP address, for example 123.123.123.123. In case you have a site, the domain name that you type to open it is for your convenience, yet the server where the site files are still has an IP. As there are a lot more sites and devices than there're IP addresses, all the shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, whereas with a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you may enjoy better search engine rankings since a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading website. Furthermore, you need such an IP when you plan to get an SSL certificate for your website and shield the information that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting
When you use any of our web hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account with ease and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've chosen for your account during the registration process, thus it's possible to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each and every domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through us, you can use the auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you'd like to use them.
