A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the world wide web that is allotted to a device or a website. Shared hosting servers usually have a lot of sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs which are not shared with anyone else. Even if you use a standard shared account, however, you're able to purchase a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your sites - one or a few. Because this can contribute to the speed of thewebsite, it's more likely that the website will get better search engine result rankings. Certainly, this isn't the only factor, but it can help you find more website visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also needed if you would like to secure the information exchanged between a website and its visitors through an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting

Using a cloud website hosting account on our cloud platform, you'll be able to acquire a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks regardless of where your account is - in the United States, Great Britain or Australia. This is 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 sites they are assigned to. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the information of your site visitors and you get it from us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't be required to anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion forum where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.
