If you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - an exclusive number which is used to identify every device connected to the Net. The website name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there are far more websites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for multiple websites even if they belong to different users. Even though this doesn't affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a site, granting it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you plan to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors enter, you'll need an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting

We provide you with dedicated IP addresses with all our website hosting plans whatever the data center location and you will be able to buy one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. A new section will show up inside your account and you'll be able to request, delete or view your IPs with just a few clicks. You will be able to choose what number of websites or subdomains will use a certain IP since you can assign one with a few clicks to every hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be your main website, that uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer services or goods on the web and it could have a dedicated IP in addition to an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a site uses from the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set a couple of of your websites to use one and the same dedicated IP provided that there is no SSL set up for it.
