All devices on the Internet are recognized by a special number called an IP address, for instance In case you have a website, the domain name that you type in order to load it is for your convenience, but the server where your website files are still has an IP address. Considering that there're many more websites and devices than there're IP addresses, all shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under the same IP, whereas with a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you're able to obtain a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you may get far better search engine rankings because a dedicated IP often means a faster loading site. Furthermore, you need such an IP in case you want to acquire an SSL certificate for your site and shield the info that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

This is valid no matter which data center you've chosen for your account during the registration process, therefore you are able to take full advantage of 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 adjust each and every domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from our company, you can use the auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you would like to use them.
