If you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - a special number that's used to identify any kind of device connected to the Net. The website name that you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there are a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for many different sites even if they are owned by different users. Even though this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a website, granting it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to secure the payment or login details that your website visitors submit, you should have an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

We provide you with dedicated IP addresses with all our Linux cloud packages whatever the data center location and you can purchase one or several IPs from your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will show up inside your account and you can request, delete or view your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You're able to decide how many websites or subdomains will use a particular IP since you can assign one with a few clicks to every hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be your main site, that uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer services or goods online and it can have a dedicated IP address along with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP that a domain uses via the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set a couple of of your websites to use a single dedicated IP as long as there's no SSL activated for it.
