A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the web that is given to a device or a site. Shared web hosting servers usually have numerous websites under the same IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs which are not shared with others. Even when you use a standard shared account, however, you'll be able to acquire a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your sites - one or a few. Since this can contribute to the speed of thewebsite, it's more likely that the website will get greater search engine result positions. Of course, that isn't the only factor, but it is likely to help you get more website visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also required when you intend to encrypt the info exchanged between a site and its visitors using an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

If you use some of our shared hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account with ease and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've chosen for your account during the signup process, which means that 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 electronic commerce site, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each and every domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from our company, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you want to use them.
