A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the net that's given to a device or a site. Shared hosting servers usually have a number of sites under the very same IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs which are not shared with anybody else. Even if you use a common shared account, however, you are able to purchase a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your sites - one or a few. Because this can add up to the speed of yourwebsite, it is much more likely that the website will get greater search engine result positions. Of course, this is not the only factor, but it can help you have more website visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also required if you'd like to encode the info exchanged between the website and its visitors through an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting

When you use some of our cloud website hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've selected for the account throughout the sign-up process, therefore you will be able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can adjust each domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through us, you will be able to use the auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you want to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

With only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to add one or multiple dedicated IP addresses to your Linux semi-dedicated server and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will help you view the available IP addresses and to check the ones that are in use with ease. In case you want to obtain a new IP for an SSL certificate, you can use the auto-configuration function, that's available in our SSL order wizard. If you activate this option, you won't have to do anything after you post your order as our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, then install the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. That way, you are able to shield the details that visitors upload on your site even if you lack previous experience with this kind of matters.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

If you buy a VPS server from us, you'll receive a dedicated IP address as standard and an extra one if you acquire a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You will be able to use the IPs for any sort of purpose - a site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you can use to point to your VPS any domain which you plan to host. You can also add extra dedicated IPs to your VPS account when you need them. You can do this from the billing Control Panel that you'll receive to take care of renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it will take no more than a couple of clicks. Shortly after you upload your order, the additional IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you will be able to use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

As all of our Linux dedicated servers feature three dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans by default, we will give you a serious advantage in case you'd like to run any application which needs this type of an IP. We supply them free of cost and you can use them for as long as you use the server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain which you host, an SSL certificate for any website on the server, a software server (online games, VOIP), etcetera. From the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll receive to control renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you will also be able to obtain more dedicated IPs in groups of three at any moment. They'll be assigned to your server in a few minutes, so you can start using them for your websites and web-based applications right away.
