A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the web that is assigned to a device or a website. Shared hosting servers usually have a number of sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs which aren't shared with anyone else. Even if you use a standard shared account, however, you can acquire a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your sites - one or a few. Since this can contribute to the speed of yoursite, it's more likely that the website will get better search engine result rankings. Certainly, this isn't the sole factor, but it is likely to help you have more visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also needed when you would like to secure the info exchanged between the website and its visitors using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
When you use a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to purchase a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks regardless of where your account is - in the US, the UK or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains section of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're assigned to. In case you want to use an SSL certificate to protect the information of your website visitors and you acquire it through our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't need to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion board where users can share opinions about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you obtain a semi-dedicated server account through us, you'll get the option to acquire as many dedicated IP addresses as you'd like depending on your preferences. It takes just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to acquire a new IP plus several more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very easy and your site will start opening from your new IP address in minutes. Hepsia will allow you to view all the IP addresses which you're able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. In case you want to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you need 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 upload your order, so you don't have to customize anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All of our VPS servers provide you with one dedicated IP address by default and in case you pick a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, DirectAdmin, cPanel) throughout the signup process, you'll acquire an additional one as well free of charge. You're able to employ them as you see fit - to access site content, to manage a web app, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name which you have and use the latter for any other domain that you plan to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you are able to take care of all of the plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain name registrations will enable you to order more dedicated IPs in case you need them for any purpose. Just a few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you will be able to use them straight away.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All the Linux dedicated web hosting plans that we supply come with three dedicated IP addresses as standard and free of charge. You can use them for any purpose depending on the content that you have on your server - an online game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your customers may use to redirect domain names to their hosting accounts, etc. You will also be able to order extra dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with your server. You will be able to purchase the IPs in groups of three and they will be added to your dedicated server shortly after you send your order, so you can start using them without any delays.
