When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - a unique number that is used to identify any device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there are a lot more sites than IPs, shared hosting servers use a single IP for several websites even in case they belong to several users. While this does not affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a site, granting it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you want to secure the payment or login information that your site visitors submit, you should have an IP alongside the SSL.

With a shared web hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to purchase a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks wherever your account is - in the US, the UK or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains part of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are assigned to. If you wish to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the info of your visitors and you acquire it through us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion forum where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for example.
