When you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - a special number that is used to distinguish every device connected to the Web. The website name which you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there are many more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for several sites even if they are owned by separate users. Even though this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a certain website, giving it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you want to secure the payment or login details that your site visitors enter, you should have an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting

We offer dedicated IP addresses with all of our website hosting whatever the data center location and you're able to purchase one or several IPs from your Hepsia Control Panel. A new section will appear as part of your account and you will be able to request, view or delete your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You're able to select how many websites or subdomains will use a particular IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to any hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be your main website, which uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer services or goods online and it could have a dedicated IP along with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which a website 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 few of your sites to use one and the same dedicated IP as long as there's no SSL installed for it.
