A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the web that is given to a device or a website. Shared web hosting servers usually have plenty of sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs that are not shared with others. Even if you use a regular shared account, however, you will be able to obtain a dedicated IP address that will be in use just by your websites - one or a few. Since this can add up to the speed of awebsite, it is much more likely that the website will get better search engine result rankings. Of course, this is not the sole factor, but it is likely to help you find more visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also necessary if you would like to encrypt the information exchanged between a site and its visitors by using an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting

With a cloud website hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to get a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks regardless of where your account is - in the United States, the UK or Australia. This can be 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 sites they're allotted to. In case you wish to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the info of your visitors and you acquire it from our company, 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 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 thoughts and opinions about your services, for instance.
