A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the Internet that is assigned to a device or a website. Shared hosting servers usually have a multitude of sites under the very same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs that are not shared with others. Even if you use a common shared account, however, you will be 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 much more likely that the website will get superior search engine result rankings. Of course, this is not the only factor, but it is likely to help you find more visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also required when you intend to secure the information exchanged between the website and its visitors using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting
When you use a website hosting account on our cloud platform, you can purchase a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks wherever your account is - in the US, the United Kingdom or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains area of the 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. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate to secure the info of your site visitors and you get it through us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't have to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a message board where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, will make it very simple to get a dedicated IP address and use it for any website that you have in your account irrespective of whether it is under a domain or a subdomain. With only a few clicks you're able to order the IP and when our system assigns it, you'll be able to set it for one or several sites from the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel. In the same location you can also find what IP is used by each and every domain or subdomain, a long list of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what site they're assigned to? If the IP you need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take advantage of our useful SSL wizard that will make the overall process very easy as it will request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and after that set up the SSL without the need of any action on your side aside from placing your order.
