Dedicated IP Address
Discover what a dedicated IP address is actually and why your site will likely need one sooner or later.
If you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that's used to detect every device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name which you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. As there're far more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for a number of websites even if they belong to separate users. While this does not affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a website, giving it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you would like to protect the payment or login information that your site visitors type in, you'll need an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Hosting
When you use a hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to purchase a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks no matter where your account is - in the United States, Great Britain or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains section of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're allotted to. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate so as to protect the info of your visitors and you get it through us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't be required to anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion forum where users can share opinions about your services, for example.
