A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the world wide web that is allotted to a device or a website. Shared website hosting servers usually have a number of websites under the same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs which aren't shared with anyone else. Even when you use a common shared account, however, you are able to purchase a dedicated IP address that will be used just by your websites - one or a few. As this can contribute to the speed of awebsite, it's much more likely that the site will get better search engine result positions. Certainly, this is not the sole factor, but it can help you get more visitors and prospective clients. The dedicated IP is also necessary when you'd like to encode the info exchanged between a website and its visitors using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting
With a website hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to purchase a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks regardless of where your account is - in the United States, the UK or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains area 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. When you wish to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the info of your site visitors and you acquire it through us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a community forum where users can share opinions about your services, for instance.
