A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the net that is assigned to a device or a site. Shared web hosting servers usually have numerous sites under a single IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs that are not shared with others. Even when you use a regular 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. As this can add up to the speed of yourwebsite, it is much more likely that the website will get better search engine result rankings. Certainly, this isn't the sole factor, but it can help you get more site visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also necessary when you intend to encrypt the info exchanged between a website and its visitors using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting
When you use a website hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to acquire a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the USA, the United Kingdom or Australia. This is 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 sites they are assigned to. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate so as to protect the info of your website visitors and you acquire it through us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't have to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a message board where users can share opinions about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to add one or multiple dedicated IP addresses to your Linux semi-dedicated service and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will help you find the available IP addresses and to check those that are in use with ease. In case you wish to acquire a new IP for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration function, which is available in our SSL order wizard. When you activate this feature, you will not need to do anything after you send in your order as our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, and then install the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. In this way, you can shield the data that visitors post on your site even if you do not have any previous experience with such matters.

Also, you can add more dedicated IPs to the VPS account if you need them. This can be done through the billing Control Panel that you will acquire to take care of renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it takes only a couple of clicks.
