A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the web which is assigned to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have a multitude of websites under the very same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs which are not shared with anybody else. Even if you use a common shared account, however, you will be able to purchase a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your sites - one or a few. Since this can contribute to the speed of thesite, it's much more likely that the site will get better search engine result rankings. Certainly, this isn't the only factor, but it is likely to help you get more visitors and prospective clients. The dedicated IP is also necessary if you wish to encode the information exchanged between a site and its visitors through an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting

If you use some of our cloud website hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've chosen for the account during the sign-up process, thus you're able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from our company, you are able to use the auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you would like to use them.
