A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the Internet which is assigned to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have a multitude of websites under a single IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs that aren't shared with anybody else. Even when you use a typical shared account, however, you can obtain a dedicated IP address that will be in use just by your sites - one or a few. Because this can add up to the speed of asite, it is more likely that the site will get greater search engine result positions. Certainly, that isn't the only factor, but it is likely to help you find more site visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also needed if you'd like to encode the info exchanged between a site and its visitors by using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting
Using a shared web hosting account on our cloud platform, you can buy a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks wherever your account is - in the USA, Britain or Australia. This can be 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're allotted to. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate so as to secure the info of your visitors and you obtain it through us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not have to do 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 address - a message board where users can share opinions about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting
All the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we provide feature three dedicated IP addresses as standard and free of charge. You'll be able to use them for any type of purpose based on the content that you have on your server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your customers can use to point domains to their hosting accounts, and much more. What's more, you can obtain additional dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with the server. You can acquire the IPs in groups of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server right after you submit your order, which means that you can start using them with no delays.
