A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the world wide web that's given to a device or a site. Shared hosting servers usually have numerous sites under the very same IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs that aren't shared with others. Even when you use a common shared account, however, you will 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 thewebsite, it's more likely that the website will get superior search engine result rankings. Certainly, this is not the sole factor, but it is likely to help you get more website visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also required if you intend to secure the information exchanged between a site and its visitors through an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting

With a cloud website hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to buy a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks no matter where your account is - in the United States, Great Britain or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains section of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're assigned to. If you wish to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the info of your visitors and you acquire it through us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't have to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion board where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account through us, you'll get the option to get as many dedicated IP addresses as you need depending on the needs you have. It will take just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to get a new IP plus several more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is really easy and your website will start opening from the new IP address in minutes. Hepsia will enable you to view all IP addresses that you'll be able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. If you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and install the certificate the moment you upload your order, so you do not have to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

If you buy a VPS server from us, you'll have a dedicated IP address by default and a second one in case you obtain a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You are able to use the IP addresses for any kind of purpose - an Internet site, some web app 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 plan to host. Additionally, you can add extra dedicated IPs to the VPS account any time you need them. This can be done via the billing Control Panel that you'll get so as to control renewals, upgrade purchases and domain name registrations and it will take no more than a couple of clicks. After you post your order, the extra IP addresses will be accessible, so you can use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Because it is possible to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all of our packages come with three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you need to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs that we provide absolutely free. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you've registered with us or somewhere else and then employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you manage a web hosting company, for example, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone service provider. When you need more IP addresses than the three the plans come with, you'll be able to purchase additional ones in increments of 3 either throughout the registration process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
