If you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that's used to identify any device connected to the Internet. The domain name that you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Because there are far more sites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for multiple sites even in case they are owned by several users. While this doesn't affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a particular website, providing it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you wish to protect the payment or login info that your site visitors enter, you should have an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting

With a cloud web hosting account on our cloud platform, you can purchase a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks no matter where your account is - in the US, Britain or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains part of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they are allotted to. When you want to use an SSL certificate to protect the info of your visitors and you obtain it through our company, our system will 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 may still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a community forum where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for example.
