If you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - a unique number that is used to distinguish any device connected to the Net. The domain name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. As there're many more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for a variety of sites even if they belong to different users. While this does not affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a website, giving it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you wish to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors type in, you'll need an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting
We provide dedicated IPs with all of our Linux cloud website hosting packages regardless of the data center location and you will be able to get one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. A fresh section will appear inside your account and you will be able to request, delete or view your IPs with just a few clicks. You will be able to decide how many sites or subdomains will use a particular IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to every hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be the main site, which uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer services or goods on the internet and it could have a dedicated IP in addition to 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 may also set a few of your websites to use the same dedicated IP given that there is no SSL set up for it.
