A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the web which is assigned to a device or a site. Shared hosting servers usually have a multitude of sites under a single IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs that are not shared with anyone else. Even when you use a standard shared account, however, you're able to acquire a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your sites - one or a few. Because this can add up to the speed of asite, it is much more likely that the website will get greater search engine result rankings. Of course, this isn't the only factor, but it is likely to help you have more visitors and prospective clients. The dedicated IP is also needed when you would like to encrypt the information exchanged between the site and its visitors by using an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

When you use some of our shared hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP to your account without any difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've picked for the account during the sign-up process, thus you are able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each and every domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through our company, you will be able to use the auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you want to use them.
