If you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a unique number that's used to detect every device connected to the Web. The website name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there are many more websites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for a number of sites even in case they belong to several users. Even though this doesn't affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a given website, providing it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you would like to secure the payment or login information that your website visitors type in, you should have an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

If you use some of our shared website hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP to your account with ease and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've picked for your account throughout the registration process, which means that you are able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can adjust each and every domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL from our company, you can use our auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you want to use them.
