A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the world wide web that is assigned to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have a number of sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs which are not shared with anyone else. Even when you use a common shared account, however, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your websites - one or a few. Because this can add up to the speed of thesite, it is more likely that the site will get improved search engine result rankings. Certainly, this is not the sole factor, but it is likely to help you have more visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also required if you'd like to encode the info exchanged between the site and its visitors through an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting

When you use any of our cloud web hosting packages, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have picked for the account throughout the sign-up process, so you can use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can adjust each and every domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through us, you'll be able to use our auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from us, you will get the opportunity to obtain as many dedicated IPs as you like depending on your needs. It will take a few clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to acquire a new IP plus a couple of more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very simple and your website will start loading from your new IP address in minutes. Hepsia will enable you to view all the IPs that you'll be able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which will assign a new IP and install the certificate once you send your order, so you do not have to customize anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting

In case you acquire a virtual private server from our company, you will receive one dedicated IP address by default and a second one in case you acquire a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You are able to use the IP addresses for any purpose - a site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you're able to use to point to your VPS any website that you would like to host. Additionally, you can add extra dedicated IPs to your VPS account when you need them. This can be done via the billing Control Panel that you'll get to control renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it takes just a few clicks. After you send your order, the added IP addresses will be accessible, so you'll be able to use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we provide include three dedicated IP addresses by default and cost-free. You're able to use them for any kind of purpose according to the content that you've got on the server - a video game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients may use to redirect domain names to their web hosting accounts, and many other things. You can also obtain more dedicated IP addresses via the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with your server. You can obtain the IPs in sets of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server shortly after you submit your order, which means that you can use them without delays.
