When you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - a special number that's used to distinguish a device connected to the Net. The website name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. As there are far more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for several sites even if they belong to separate users. While this does not affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a given website, granting it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you plan to secure the payment or login info that your site visitors enter, you should have an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting

Using a cloud web hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to buy a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the US, Great Britain or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains section of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're allotted to. If you wish to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the info of your site visitors and you acquire it from us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't be required to anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion forum where users can share opinions about your services, for example.
