When you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that's used to identify any device connected to the Net. The domain name that you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there are many more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for a variety of sites even in case they are owned by several users. Even though this does not affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a given site, providing it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you wish to secure the payment or login information that your website visitors type in, you will need an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

We provide dedicated IP addresses with all our Linux shared hosting whatever the data center location and you are able to obtain one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will show up in your account and you can request, delete or view your IPs with a few clicks. You can select how many websites or subdomains will use a particular IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to every hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be the main website, which uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer goods or services on the net and it could have a dedicated IP combined with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP that a domain uses via the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set a few of your sites to use one and the same dedicated IP provided that there's no SSL set up for it.
