A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the web which is allotted to a device or a website. Shared web hosting servers usually have a lot of websites under a single IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs that aren't shared with anybody else. Even when you use a standard shared account, however, you will be able to get a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your websites - one or a few. Because this can contribute to the speed of thesite, it's much more likely that the website will get superior search engine result rankings. Certainly, this is not the only factor, but it is likely to help you have more website visitors and prospective clients. The dedicated IP is also necessary if you would like to encrypt the info exchanged between a website and its visitors through an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
If you use any of our shared hosting
plans, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account in no time and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have selected for your account throughout the registration process, therefore you'll be able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can adjust each and every domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL from our company, you can use our auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you want to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account, adding a 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 will not experience any kind of difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP address as an alternative to the server's shared one and you'll be able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also find all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is available or you are already using it. If you want an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you will be able to select everything to be installed automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up your certificate in a matter of minutes, so you won't have to do anything on your end other than approving your SSL request through email.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting
All Linux VPS hosting
that we supply feature a dedicated IP, so you will not share the IP with any other client with an account on the very same server. If you choose a website hosting Control Panel for the server during the registration process, you'll receive a second dedicated IP as well and you're able to use it for any content which you host on your VPS - a website, an app, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etc. If you would like to have more IPs, you'll be able to order them as an extra upgrade through your billing Control Panel and they will be assigned to your server very quickly. You can take care of the IPs without any difficulty from your web hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel which you'll obtain to maintain the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting
Due to the fact that you'll be able to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server
, all our packages feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you plan to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you will be able to use the IPs which we provide you with for free. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you've registered through us or any place else and use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you run a web hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone provider. In case you need more IPs than the three our plans come with, you'll be able to purchase additional ones in increments of three either throughout the registration process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
