A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the web that's given to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have plenty of websites under the same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs that are not shared with anyone else. Even if you use a typical shared account, however, you'll be able to obtain a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your websites - one or a few. As this can add up to the speed of awebsite, it's much more likely that the site will get greater search engine result positions. Certainly, that isn't the sole factor, but it can help you have more website visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also needed when you'd like to encode the information exchanged between a site and its visitors through an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

If you use any of our shared web hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've selected for the account throughout the registration process, thus you can take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can edit each domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL through our company, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes no more than a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a website hosting account before, you won't experience any kind of difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP address. Every domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP address in place of the server's shared one and you're able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you can also see all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is available or you are already using it. In case that you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you're able to select everything to be installed automatically. With this feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install the certificate in a matter of minutes, so you won't have to do anything on your end other than approving the SSL order via electronic mail.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

If you buy a VPS server from us, you'll be given a dedicated IP address by default and another one in case you acquire a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You're able to use the IP addresses for any kind of purpose - an Internet site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you'll be able to use to point to your VPS any website that you wish to host. In addition, you can add more dedicated IPs to your VPS account every time you need them. You can do this through the billing Control Panel that you will obtain so as to manage renewals, upgrade purchases and domain name registrations and it will take no more than a couple of clicks. Soon after you post your order, the extra IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you can use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Since you'll be able to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all our plans come with three dedicated IP addresses included by default. If you plan to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs which we provide without charge. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you have registered through us or elsewhere and then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you run a hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone provider. When you need more IP addresses than the three the plans provide you with, you are able to buy additional ones in increments of 3 either during the signup process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
