A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the world wide web which is allotted to a device or a website. Shared hosting servers usually have a large number of websites under the same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs which are not shared with others. Even when you use a standard shared account, however, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your websites - one or a few. Since this can contribute to the speed of yoursite, it's much more likely that the website will get improved search engine result positions. Of course, this isn't the only factor, but it is likely to help you have more visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also required when you'd like to encode the info exchanged between a website and its visitors with an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting
When you use any of our shared web hosting packages, 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 no matter which data center you've chosen for the account during the signup process, thus you'll be able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from us, you are able to use the auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you'd like to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, will make it really easy to purchase a dedicated IP address and use it for each site that you have in your account regardless if it is under a domain or a subdomain. With only a couple of clicks you'll be able to order the IP and when our system assigns it, you will be able to set it for one or more sites from the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel. In the same location you'll also be able to view what IP is used by each and every domain or subdomain, an index of the dedicated IP addresses as well as if and what website they're assigned to? In case the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to take full advantage of our user-friendly SSL wizard that will make the whole process really easy due to the fact that it'll request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and after that install the SSL without the need of any action on your side apart from placing the order.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All of our VPS servers come with one dedicated IP as standard and if you get a web hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, Hepsia, cPanel) during the registration process, you'll acquire an additional one too absolutely free. You will be able to use them as you see fit - to access online content, to run a web app, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name that you have and use the latter for any other website that you intend to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you are able to control all plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain name registrations will allow you to order more dedicated IPs in case you need them for any purpose. Just a couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you will be able to use them without delay.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Because you can run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all of our packages come with three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you want to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you're able to use the IPs that we provide you with without charge. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you have registered through us or somewhere else and employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you own a web hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. In case you need more IPs than the three the plans provide you with, you will be able to purchase additional ones in increments of 3 either during the registration process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
