If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a special number which is used to detect any device connected to the Web. The domain name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there're far more sites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for a variety of websites even in case they belong to separate users. Even though this doesn't affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a given site, providing it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you want to secure the payment or login details that your site visitors type in, you will need an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
If you host your sites on our up-to-date cloud platform and you have a shared hosting
package, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any moment and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only a few clicks. The aforementioned option is accessible in all data center facilities where we offer services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so irrespective of your choice throughout the registration process, you will be able to acquire a dedicated IP address for your sites. You can add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any moment. If any of the IPs that you buy will be used for an SSL certificate, you may enable the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and then our system will request & assign the IP before it sets up the certificate automatically. Our adaptable platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP address for multiple websites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.

The Hepsia Control Panel, that is supplied with all of our semi-dedicated server

In the same place you will also be able to find what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, an index of the dedicated IP addresses as well as if and what website they are assigned to? If the IP you need is for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to take advantage of our useful SSL wizard that will make the whole process very simple since it will request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and after that install the SSL without the need of any action on your side apart from placing the order.
