A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the world wide web that is assigned to a device or a website. Shared hosting servers usually have numerous websites under the very same IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs that aren't shared with anyone else. Even when you use a typical shared account, however, you'll be able to obtain a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your sites - one or a few. As this can add up to the speed of thewebsite, it's much more likely that the site will get better search engine result rankings. Certainly, that isn't the sole factor, but it can help you find more website visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also required if you'd like to encode the info exchanged between the site and its visitors using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
When you use a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to obtain a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks no matter where your account is - in the USA, Britain or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains area of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are assigned to. If you would like to use an SSL certificate to protect the info of your site visitors and you get it through us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a community forum where users can share opinions about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server account through us, you will have the option to acquire as many dedicated IPs as you like depending on your business needs. It takes just a few clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to get a new IP plus several more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is very simple and your site will start loading from the new IP address within minutes. Hepsia will allow you to see all IPs which you'll be able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. Provided you want to use an SSL certificate on some of your sites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which can assign a new IP and install the certificate once you upload your order, so you won't need to customize anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
Our VPS web hosting plans come with one dedicated IP address as standard and in case you select a hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, cPanel, Hepsia) during the registration process, you'll obtain a second one as well without charge. You will be able to use them as you decide - to access site content, to manage a web app, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain that you have and use the latter for any other domain that you intend to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you will be able to take care of all plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will enable you to order extra dedicated IPs when you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them immediately.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
If you acquire a dedicated server, you probably want to run a web application or host numerous websites, so we provide 3 dedicated IP addresses gratis with each and every package and you will be able to use them the way you like - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name which you've registered here or via another company. The last mentioned option is really helpful in case you use the dedicated server to host users' sites due to the fact that it will give you authority and anonymity as a website hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add more IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes just a few clicks in the Upgrades section, so you can go ahead and start using the brand new dedicated IPs several minutes after you submit your order.
