All devices on the Web are recognized by a special number called an IP address, for instance In case you have a site, the domain name that you enter in order to access it is for your convenience, however the server where your site files are still has an IP. Since there're many more websites and devices than there are IPs, all the shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, while when you use a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you're able to get a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you'll get far better search engine positions since a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading site. Furthermore, you need such an IP if you would like to buy an SSL certificate for your site and shield the info that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

When you use a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform, you can purchase a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the US, Britain or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains section of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're assigned to. In case you wish to use an SSL certificate so as to secure the information of your website 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 need to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a community forum where users can share opinions about your services, for example.
