A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the Internet that is assigned to a device or a site. Shared hosting servers usually have a large number of websites under the same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs that aren't shared with anyone else. Even when you use a standard shared account, however, you'll be able to buy a dedicated IP address that will be used just by your sites - one or a few. As this can add up to the speed of thewebsite, it is more likely that the site will get superior search engine result positions. Certainly, this isn't the only factor, but it can help you have more visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also required when you wish to secure the information exchanged between a site and its visitors using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting
When you use some of our web hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP to your account without any difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have picked for the account throughout the registration process, thus it's possible to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can adjust each and every domain or subdomain individually from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from us, you can use the auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you would like to use them.
