A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the net which is allotted to a device or a website. Shared hosting servers usually have a multitude of sites under a single IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs which are not shared with anybody else. Even if you use a standard shared account, however, it is possible to purchase a dedicated IP address that will be in use just by your sites - one or a few. Considering that this can contribute to the speed of thesite, it is much more likely that the website will get superior search engine result rankings. Certainly, this is not the only factor, but it can help you have more site visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also required when you want to encode the information exchanged between a site and its visitors using an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

Using a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you can acquire a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks no matter where your account is - in the US, Britain or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains section of our 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're allotted to. If you wish to use an SSL certificate to secure the information of your website visitors and you get it through our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a message board where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.
