A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the web which is allotted to a device or a website. Shared web hosting servers usually have a lot of sites under a single IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs which aren't shared with anyone else. Even if you use a typical shared account, however, you are able to get a dedicated IP address that will be in use just by your sites - one or a few. Considering that this can contribute to the speed of yourwebsite, it's much more likely that the site will get better search engine result positions. Certainly, this isn't the only factor, but it can help you have more visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also necessary if you'd like to secure the info 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'll 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 whichever data center you have selected for your account throughout the signup process, thus you will 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 instance, 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 part of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL through our company, you are able to use our auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you wish to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes only a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a website hosting account before, you will not encounter any kind of difficulties to acquire and assign a dedicated IP. Each domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP address as an alternative to the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you will also find all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is free or you're already using it. If you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you are able to select everything to be installed automatically. With this particular feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up your certificate within minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end apart from authorizing the SSL order through electronic mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All of our VPS web hosting plans feature one dedicated IP as standard and when you pick a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin) during the signup process, you will obtain an extra one too for free. You'll be able to use them as you decide - to access online content, to run 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 website that you intend to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you will be able to control all plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will allow you to order additional dedicated IPs when you need them for any purpose. A few 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
Considering that you can run almost anything on a dedicated server, all our plans come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you plan to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you're able to use the IPs that we provide you with for free. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you have registered with us or any place else then employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you manage a web hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone provider. When you need more IPs than the three the packages provide you with, you are able to buy extra ones in increments of 3 either throughout the registration process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
