A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the net that is allotted to a device or a website. Shared hosting servers usually have a lot of sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs which aren't shared with anybody else. Even when you use a typical shared account, however, it is possible to buy a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your sites - one or a few. As this can add up to the speed of yoursite, it's much more likely that the site will get improved search engine result positions. Of course, this isn't the only factor, but it can help you find more site visitors and prospective clients. The dedicated IP is also required if you would like to encode the information exchanged between the site and its visitors with an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting
Using a cloud website hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to purchase a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks regardless of where your account is - in the US, the UK or Australia. This can be done from 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 websites they are allotted to. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate to protect the info of your site visitors and you acquire it through our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't have to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a community forum where users can share opinions about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
In case you obtain a dedicated server, you probably would like to run some web application or host a number of Internet sites, so we supply three dedicated IPs at no charge with each and every plan and you're able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name that you've registered here or via another company. The last option is really helpful in case you use the dedicated server to host clients' websites considering that it will give you credibility and anonymity as a hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add extra IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes just a few clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you're able to go ahead and employ your brand new dedicated IP addresses just a few minutes after you submit your order.
