A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the Internet that is assigned to a device or a site. Shared hosting servers usually have numerous websites under a single IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs that aren't shared with anyone else. Even when you use a typical shared account, however, you are able to buy a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your websites - one or a few. Because this can add up to the speed of thewebsite, it is more likely that the website will get improved search engine result rankings. Of course, this is not the sole factor, but it is likely to help you find more website visitors and prospective clients. The dedicated IP is also needed if you want to encrypt the information exchanged between a website and its visitors using an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

When you use a shared website hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to acquire a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the USA, the United Kingdom or Australia. This is done through 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. If you would like to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the info of your visitors and you acquire it through us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't have to do 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 board where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting

Due to the fact that you will be able to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our packages feature three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you want to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you can use the IPs which we supply free of charge. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you've registered through us or any place else then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you manage a web hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone provider. In case you need more IPs than the three the plans feature, you will be able to purchase additional ones in increments of three either during the signup process or through your billing Control Panel at any time.
