All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a unique number called an IP address, for example 123.123.123.123. If you have a site, the domain that you type to be able to access it is to save you time, but the server where your website files are still has an IP. As there are many more sites and devices than there're IPs, all of the shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you're able to get a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you will get superior search engine positions as a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading website. What's more, you need such an IP in case you plan to acquire an SSL certificate for your website and shield the info that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

With a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to get a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks no matter where your account is - in the United States, the United Kingdom or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains part of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're allotted to. If you wish to use an SSL certificate so as to protect the information of your website visitors and you acquire it through us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't be required to anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a message board where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for instance.
