A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the web that is assigned to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have a number of websites under the very same IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs that aren't shared with others. Even when you use a common shared account, however, you'll be able to obtain a dedicated IP address that will be in use just by your websites - one or a few. Since this can contribute to the speed of awebsite, it's much more likely that the website will get greater search engine result rankings. Of course, that isn't the sole factor, but it can help you find more website visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also necessary when you would like to secure the info exchanged between the website and its visitors through an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting

With a cloud website hosting account on our cloud platform, you can obtain a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks no matter where your account is - in the USA, Britain or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains part of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are assigned to. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate to protect the info of your visitors and you obtain it through us, 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 site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a community forum where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Because our dedicated servers come with three dedicated IP addresses included in the plans by default, we will give you a head start in case you wish to run any software which requires this kind of an IP. We supply them absolutely free and you can use them for as long as you use your server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain name which you host, an SSL certificate for any site on the server, a software server (games, VOIP), etc. Through the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will get to manage renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you can also buy more dedicated IP addresses in groups of three at any time. They will be assigned to your server within a few minutes, so that you can start using them for your websites and web-based applications right away.
