All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a special number called an IP address, such as When you have a website, the domain name that you type to open it is for your convenience, however the server where the website files are still has an IP. Since there're far more sites and devices than there're IPs, all shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under the same IP, while when you use a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you'll get improved search engine positions as a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading site. What is more, you need such an IP if you plan to get an SSL certificate for your site and secure the data that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

If you use some of our shared hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account without any difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have selected for your account during the registration process, therefore it's possible to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can adjust each domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from us, you can use the auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you wish to use them.
