A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the Internet that's allotted to a device or a website. Shared website hosting servers usually have a lot of sites under the very same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs which are not shared with anyone else. Even if you use a common shared account, however, you are able to acquire a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your sites - one or a few. Considering that this can add up to the speed of yoursite, it is much more likely that the site will get superior search engine result rankings. Of course, this isn't the only factor, but it is likely to help you get more website visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also necessary when you would like to secure the information exchanged between the site and its visitors using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Hosting
If you use some of our hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without 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've picked for your account throughout the signup process, so you are able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can adjust each domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from us, you will be able to use our auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you want to use them.
