A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the Internet which is assigned to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have a large number of websites under a single IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs which are not shared with anybody else. Even if you use a standard shared account, however, you'll be able to acquire a dedicated IP address that will be used just by your websites - one or a few. As this can add up to the speed of asite, it is much more likely that the site will get greater search engine result positions. Of course, this is not the only factor, but it is likely to help you have more website visitors and prospective clients. The dedicated IP is also needed when you intend to encrypt the information exchanged between a site and its visitors with an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting

When you use any of our website hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without any difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've picked for the account during the signup process, therefore you will be able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can edit each domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL through us, you're able to use the auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you wish to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you obtain a semi-dedicated server account from us, you will get the option to obtain as many dedicated IPs as you like depending on your business needs. It will take a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to get a new IP and a couple of more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very easy and your site will start opening from your new IP address in minutes. Hepsia will enable you to view all IP addresses which you are able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. If you want 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, which will assign a new IP and set up the certificate as soon as you submit your order, so you won't have to modify anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS

All the VPS packages that we supply come with a dedicated IP, so you won't share the IP with any other client with another account on the same machine. In case you select a website hosting Control Panel for the server during the registration process, you will get a second dedicated IP too and you are able to use it for any content which you host on the VPS - an Internet site, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etcetera. In case you would like to have more IPs, you will be able to order them as an extra upgrade using your billing Control Panel and they will be assigned to your server within a matter of minutes. You will be able to control your IPs with ease via your website hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel which you'll obtain to manage the virtual machine.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting

Since you will be able to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all our packages feature three dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you need to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you're able to use the IPs which we provide you with free of charge. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you've registered with us or any place else then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you own a website hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. In case you need more IPs than the three the plans feature, you will be able to buy additional ones in increments of 3 either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
