All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a specific number called an IP address, such as 123.123.123.123. When you have a site, the domain that you type to be able to open it is for your convenience, however the server where your site files are still has an IP address. Since there are a lot more websites and devices than there're IP addresses, all the shared hosting servers have a number of sites under the very same IP, while with a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you'll be able to obtain a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you may get improved search engine positions since a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading site. Last but not least, you need such an IP in case you want to buy an SSL certificate for your website and secure the information that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting

With a cloud web hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to obtain a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks no matter where your account is - in the USA, Britain or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains area 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 allotted to. If you would like to use an SSL certificate so as to secure the info of your site visitors and you get it from our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't need to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a community forum where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.
