A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the net that is given to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have a number of sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs which aren't shared with anyone else. Even when you use a regular shared account, however, it is possible to get a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your websites - one or a few. As this can add up to the speed of awebsite, it is more likely that the website will get better search engine result rankings. Certainly, that isn't the only factor, but it is likely to help you find more site visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also needed when you'd like to encode the information exchanged between a website and its visitors using an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Hosting

Using a hosting account on our cloud platform, you'll be able to purchase a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks regardless of where your account is - in the United States, Britain or Australia. This is done through 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 sites they're allotted to. When you want to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the info of your website visitors and you get it through us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a community forum where users can share opinions about your services, for example.
