All devices on the Web are identified by a specific number called an IP address, such as 123.123.123.123. When you have a site, the domain name that you enter in order to access it is to save you time, but the server where the site files are still has an IP. Considering that there're a lot more websites and devices than there are IPs, all of the shared hosting servers have a number of sites under the very same IP, while with a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you'll be able to acquire a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you'll get far better search engine positions as a dedicated IP generally means a quicker loading website. What's more, you need such an IP when you want to acquire an SSL certificate for your site and protect the information that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

We offer dedicated IP addresses with all our Linux shared website hosting packages regardless of the data center location and you can purchase one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will appear inside your account and you are able to request, view or delete your IPs with just a few clicks. You are able to select what number of domains or subdomains will use a given IP since you can assign one with a few clicks to any hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be the main website, that uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer services or goods on the web and it could have a dedicated IP address combined with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which a domain uses from the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set some of your websites to use the same dedicated IP provided that there is no SSL installed for it.
