A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the net which is allotted to a device or a site. Shared hosting servers usually have a large number of websites under a single IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs which aren't shared with anybody else. Even if you use a regular shared account, however, it is possible to purchase a dedicated IP address that will be used just by your sites - one or a few. Considering that this can contribute to the speed of yoursite, it is more likely that the website will get better search engine result rankings. Certainly, that isn't the sole factor, but it can help you get more website visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also required if you would like to encode the information exchanged between the website and its visitors using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
Using a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to acquire 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, the UK or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains section of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they are assigned to. If you wish to use an SSL certificate so as to secure the info of your visitors and you obtain it from our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion board where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will have the option to acquire as many dedicated IPs as you would like depending on your business needs. It takes just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to buy your new IP and a couple of more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very simple and your website will start opening from the new IP address in a few minutes. Hepsia will enable you to view all of the IP addresses which you will be able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. If you'd like to use an SSL certificate on some of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which can assign a new IP and install the certificate once you upload your order, so you don't have to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account by yourself.
