A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the world wide web that's assigned to a device or a website. Shared web hosting servers usually have a lot of websites under a single IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs that are not shared with others. Even when you use a typical shared account, however, you're able to obtain a dedicated IP address that will be used just by your websites - one or a few. Considering that this can contribute to the speed of yourwebsite, it is more likely that the site will get better search engine result positions. Of course, this isn't the only factor, but it can help you get more visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also required if you want to encode the information exchanged between a site 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 will be able to obtain 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 US, Britain or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains part of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're assigned to. When you wish to use an SSL certificate to secure the information of your website visitors and you obtain it through us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a message board where users can share opinions about your services, for instance.
