A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the Internet that's allotted to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have plenty of sites under a single IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs that are not shared with others. Even if you use a common shared account, however, it is possible to get a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your sites - one or a few. Since this can add up to the speed of thesite, it's more likely that the site will get improved search engine result rankings. Of course, this is not the sole factor, but it can help you get more site visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also required if you intend to secure the info exchanged between a site and its visitors by using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting
If you use some of our cloud website hosting plans, you can 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 whichever data center you've picked for your account during the sign-up process, so you can take full 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, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can adjust each domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL from our company, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you want to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
Due to the fact that it is possible to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all our packages come with three dedicated IP addresses included by default. If you need to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you will be able to use the IPs that we provide you with free of charge. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you've registered through our company or somewhere else and employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you run a website hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent provider. When you need more IP addresses than the three our packages provide you with, you're able to buy extra ones in increments of three either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
