All devices on the Internet are recognized by a special number called an IP address, for instance If you have a site, the domain name that you enter to be able to load it is for your convenience, but the server where your website files are still has an IP. Since there are far more sites and devices than there're IP addresses, all of the shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under the very same IP, while with a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you will be able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you'll have superior search engine rankings as a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading website. What is more, you need such an IP if you would like to obtain an SSL certificate for your site and secure the data that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
If you use any of our shared website hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP to your account without any difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have selected for the account during the sign-up process, thus you are able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can adjust each domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL from us, you'll be able to use our auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you'd like to use them.

Provided you wish to acquire a new IP for an SSL certificate, you are able to use the auto-configuration function, that's available in our SSL order wizard. When you activate this feature, you will not have to do anything after you submit your order since our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, and then set up the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without the need of any action on your end.

In addition, you can purchase extra dedicated IP addresses via the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with the plan. You're able to purchase the IPs in sets of three and they will be added to your dedicated server soon after you submit your order, so that you can use them without any delays.
