All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a special number called an IP address, for instance 123.123.123.123. If you have a website, the domain that you enter to access it is for your convenience, however the server where the site files are still has an IP. Since there are a lot more sites and devices than there are IP addresses, all of the shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, while using a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you are able to acquire a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you will have better search engine rankings as a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading website. In addition, you need such an IP when you plan to get an SSL certificate for your website and shield the information that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting
We offer dedicated IP addresses with all of our shared web hosting regardless of the data center location and you are able to obtain one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will show up in your account and you will be able to request, delete or view your IPs with just a few clicks. You are able to select what number of websites or subdomains will use a particular IP as you can assign one with a couple of clicks to every hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be your main site, which uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer goods or services on the web and it could have a dedicated IP address combined with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP that a website uses via 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 sites to use one and the same dedicated IP given that there's no SSL installed for it.
