A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the Internet which is assigned to a device or a site. Shared hosting servers usually have plenty of websites under the same IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs that aren't shared with others. Even if you use a regular shared account, however, you will be able to purchase a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your websites - one or a few. Since this can add up to the speed of awebsite, it's much more likely that the site will get better search engine result positions. Certainly, this isn't the sole factor, but it is likely to help you have more visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also necessary when you'd like to encrypt the info exchanged between the website and its visitors with an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Hosting

Using a hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks wherever your account is - in the US, the United Kingdom or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains section of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're allotted to. When you would like to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the information of your website visitors and you get it from us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion forum where users can share opinions about your services, for instance.
