A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the Internet that's assigned to a device or a website. Shared web hosting servers usually have a large number of sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs that aren't shared with anyone else. Even when you use a regular shared account, however, you are able to acquire a dedicated IP address that will be in use just by your sites - one or a few. As this can contribute to the speed of yoursite, it's more likely that the website will get better search engine result positions. Of course, that isn't the only factor, but it is likely to help you find more site visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also necessary if you would like to secure the info exchanged between a site and its visitors through an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

With a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to get a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks regardless of where your account is - in the USA, Great Britain or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains section of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're allotted to. If you wish to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the info of your visitors and you acquire it from us, 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 addition to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion forum where users can share opinions about your services, for instance.
