A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the web which is assigned to a device or a site. Shared hosting servers usually have a number of sites under a single IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs which are not shared with others. Even when you use a typical shared account, however, it is possible to obtain a dedicated IP address that will be used just by your sites - one or a few. As this can add up to the speed of asite, it is more likely that the site will get greater search engine result positions. Certainly, this is not the only factor, but it can help you get more website visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also required if you intend to encrypt the information exchanged between a site and its visitors by using an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

When you use a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to buy a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks no matter where your account is - in the US, the UK or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains area of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they are assigned to. In case you want to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the information of your site visitors and you acquire it through our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion forum where users can share opinions about your services, for example.
