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.
