A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the net that is assigned to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have plenty of sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs which 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 in use only by your websites - one or a few. Because this can add up to the speed of yoursite, it's more likely that the site will get better search engine result positions. Certainly, this isn't the only factor, but it is likely to help you find more visitors and prospective clients. The dedicated IP is also necessary when you wish to encode the info exchanged between a site and its visitors using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
When you use some of our shared website hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've chosen for your account throughout the signup process, which means that you are able 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, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can edit each and every domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL through our company, you are able to use the auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you would like to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Considering that it is possible to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all of our packages come with three dedicated IP addresses included by default. If you wish to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you will be able to use the IPs which we provide for free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you've registered through us or anywhere else and then employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you manage a hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone provider. In case you need more IP addresses than the three our packages include, you can buy extra ones in increments of three either throughout the registration process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
