A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the world wide web that's allotted to a device or a website. Shared website hosting servers usually have plenty of sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs that are not shared with anybody else. Even if you use a typical shared account, however, it's possible to acquire a dedicated IP address that will be in use just by your websites - one or a few. As this can add up to the speed of asite, it is more likely that the website will get better search engine result positions. Certainly, this isn't the sole factor, but it can help you have more website visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also needed if you wish to encode the info exchanged between a site and its visitors through an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

When you use a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to purchase a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks wherever your account is - in the USA, the UK or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains part of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are assigned to. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate to protect the information of your website visitors and you acquire it through us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion forum where users can share their opinion about your services, for example.
