A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the Internet that is allotted to a device or a site. Shared web hosting servers usually have numerous sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs that are not shared with others. Even if you use a regular shared account, however, you can buy a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your websites - one or a few. Since this can contribute to the speed of yourwebsite, it's much more likely that the site will get greater search engine result rankings. Certainly, this is not the only factor, but it is likely to help you get more visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also required if you wish to encrypt the info exchanged between a site and its visitors with an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

When you use a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to acquire a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks regardless of where your account is - in the United States, Britain or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains area of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are assigned to. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the info of your site visitors and you get it through us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion board where users can share their opinion about your services, for example.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll have the option to acquire as many dedicated IPs as you need depending on the needs you have. It will take a couple of clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to order a new IP plus a couple of more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very easy and your site will start loading from the new IP address within minutes. Hepsia will enable you to view all IPs which you're able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. Provided you'd like to use an SSL certificate on any of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and set up the certificate once you submit your order, so you won't need to change anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting

In case you purchase a virtual private server from us, you'll receive one dedicated IP address by default and an additional one if you get a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You will be able to use the IP addresses for any kind 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 name that you want to host. You can even add more dedicated IP addresses to your VPS account any time you need them. You can do this from the billing Control Panel that you will receive in order to manage renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it will take only a few clicks. Shortly after you post your order, the additional IP addresses will be accessible, so you will be able to use them the way you like.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Since you can run almost anything on a dedicated server, all our packages come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included by default. If you wish to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you're able to use the IPs that we provide free of charge. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you've registered with our company or any place else and then use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you own a hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone service provider. If you need more IPs than the three our plans provide you with, you are able to get additional ones in increments of three either throughout the registration process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
