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 lot of websites under the same IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs that are not shared with anyone else. Even when you use a regular shared account, however, you're able to obtain a dedicated IP address that will be in use just by your sites - one or a few. Considering that this can add up to the speed of yoursite, it's more likely that the website will get greater search engine result rankings. Of course, this is not the only factor, but it is likely to help you have more site visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also needed if you'd like to encode the info exchanged between a site and its visitors using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting
With a website hosting
account on our cloud platform, you're able to get a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks wherever your account is - in the US, the UK or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains area of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are assigned to. In case you wish to use an SSL certificate so as to secure the information of your visitors and you get it from our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't need to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a message board where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for example.
