If you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - a unique number that is used to distinguish any device connected to the Web. The website name which you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there're a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for a variety of sites even if they are owned by different users. Even though this doesn't affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a particular site, providing it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you wish to secure the payment or login details that your website visitors type in, you'll need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

We supply dedicated IPs with all of our shared plans whatever the data center location and you're able to buy one or several IPs via your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will show up in your account and you will be able to request, view or delete your IPs with a few clicks. You're able to choose how many sites or subdomains will use a certain IP as you can assign one with a few clicks to any hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be your main site, that uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer goods or services on the net and it can have a dedicated IP together with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which a site 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 couple of of your websites to use a single dedicated IP provided that there is no SSL installed for it.
