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.
