A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the Internet that's given to a device or a site. Shared web hosting servers usually have plenty of websites under a single IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs which are not shared with anyone else. Even when you use a standard shared account, however, you can obtain a dedicated IP address that will be in use just by your sites - one or a few. Since this can add up to the speed of thesite, it is much more likely that the site will get better search engine result rankings. Certainly, this is not the sole factor, but it is likely to help you find more site visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also required if you intend to encrypt the info exchanged between a website and its visitors with an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting

With a cloud web hosting account on our cloud platform, you'll be able to buy a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks regardless of where your account is - in the USA, the United Kingdom or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains area of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are assigned to. In case you wish to use an SSL certificate to secure the information of your website visitors and you obtain it through our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can 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 their opinion about your services, for instance.
