A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the web that's given to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have a number of websites under the same IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs that aren't shared with anybody else. Even when you use a common shared account, however, you can get a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your sites - one or a few. Because this can add up to the speed of yourwebsite, it's much more likely that the website will get better search engine result rankings. Of course, that isn't the only factor, but it can help you get more visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also required when you want to encode the info exchanged between a site and its visitors through an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
When you use any of our cloud hosting packages, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've picked for your account during the signup process, therefore it's possible to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can edit each domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through us, you can use the auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you wish to use them.
