All devices on the Web are identified by a specific number called an IP address, for example 123.123.123.123. When you have a website, the domain name that you enter to be able to load it is to save you time, however the server where the website files are still has an IP. Since there are a lot more sites and devices than there are IPs, all of the shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, whereas using a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you can get a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you'll have improved search engine positions since a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading site. What is more, you need such an IP if you want to buy an SSL certificate for your website and secure the information that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting

Using a cloud website hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to purchase a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks no matter where your account is - in the United States, Great Britain or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains area of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're allotted to. If you want to use an SSL certificate so as to protect the information of your site visitors and you obtain it through our company, 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 thoughts and opinions about your services, for instance.

In addition, you can add more dedicated IP addresses to your VPS account every time you need them. You can do this through the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain to take care of renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it will take only a few clicks.
