All devices on the Web are identified by a unique number called an IP address, for example When you have a website, the domain that you type in order to load it is to save you time, but the server where your website files are still has an IP address. Considering that there're a lot more sites and devices than there are IPs, all of the shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under the same IP, whereas using a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you'll be able to get a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you may enjoy superior search engine positions because a dedicated IP generally means a quicker loading site. What's more, you need such an IP in case you would like to purchase an SSL certificate for your site and protect the info that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
If you use some of our shared website hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have chosen for the account throughout the registration process, therefore you are able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can modify each and every domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from us, you are able to use our auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you want to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting
All Linux dedicated web hosting that we provide include 3 dedicated IP addresses as standard and for free. You are able to employ them for any type of purpose according to the content that you've got on your server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your customers can use to point domains to their website hosting accounts, and many other things. You will also be able to order additional dedicated IP addresses via the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with the server. You're able to acquire the IPs in groups of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server right after you submit your order, so that you can start using them without delays.
