A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the net which is given to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have a multitude of websites under the same IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs that aren't shared with anyone else. Even if you use a regular shared account, however, it is possible to acquire a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your sites - one or a few. Because this can contribute to the speed of yoursite, it's more likely that the website will get superior search engine result positions. Of course, that isn't the sole factor, but it is likely to help you get more site visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also necessary if you wish to secure the information exchanged between the website and its visitors using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Hosting
If you use any of our hosting
packages, you can add a dedicated IP to your account with ease and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have picked for the account throughout the signup process, so it's possible to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can edit each and every domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from us, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you want to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, you have the opportunity to get as many dedicated IP addresses as you like depending on the needs you have. It will take just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to purchase your new IP and several more 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 allow you to view all the IPs that you're able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. Provided you want to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and set up the certificate as soon as you submit your order, so you do not need to change anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting
If you acquire a virtual private server
from our company, you'll have one dedicated IP address automatically and an extra one if you obtain a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IPs for any purpose - a 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 intend to host. Additionally, you can add more dedicated IPs to your VPS account any time you need them. This can be done via the billing Control Panel that you will receive to take care of renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it will take only a few clicks. Soon after you submit your order, the added IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you'll be able to use them as you see fit.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting
Due to the fact that it is possible to run almost anything on a dedicated server
, all our packages come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you would like to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you will be able to use the IPs that we provide you with without charge. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you have registered with our company or elsewhere and then employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you have a web hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. If you need more IP addresses than the three the packages feature, you can purchase additional ones in increments of three either during the signup process or through your billing Control Panel at any time.
