A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the net that is allotted to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have a number of websites under a single IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs which are not shared with anyone else. Even if you use a standard shared account, however, you will be able to purchase 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 asite, it is more likely that the site will get superior search engine result rankings. Of course, that isn't the only factor, but it is likely to help you have more website visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also needed when you wish to encrypt the info exchanged between a website and its visitors using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting
When you use some of our website hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account without any difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've selected for the account throughout the registration process, so you are able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can adjust each domain or subdomain individually from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL through us, you can use the auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you'd like to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you obtain a semi-dedicated server account from us, you have the option to get as many dedicated IP addresses as you like depending on your needs. It takes just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to purchase your new IP plus several more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very simple and your website will start loading from your new IP address within minutes. Hepsia will enable you to see all the IPs which you're 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 want a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and install the certificate once you submit your order, so you will not have to modify anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account manually.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All of our VPS web hosting plans come with one dedicated IP address by default and if you pick a web hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, cPanel, Hepsia) throughout the signup process, you'll get a second one too for free. You're able to employ them the way you like - to access website content, to manage a web application, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website which you have and use the latter for any other website that you wish to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you will be able to manage all plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will allow you to order additional dedicated IP addresses in case you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them straight away.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated web hosting plans that we supply come with three dedicated IP addresses by default and cost-free. You are able to employ them for any type of purpose depending on the content that you've got on the server - an online game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your customers may use to point domains to their website hosting accounts, etc. What's more, you can obtain more dedicated IP addresses from the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with your plan. You can get the IPs in sets of three and they will be added to your dedicated server soon after you send your order, so you can start using them with no delays.
