A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the Internet that's allotted to a device or a site. Shared web hosting servers usually have a number of sites under the very same IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs that are not shared with anybody else. Even if you use a common shared account, however, you'll be able to purchase a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your websites - one or a few. Considering that this can contribute to the speed of yoursite, it's more likely that the website will get greater search engine result rankings. Of course, that isn't the only factor, but it is likely to help you find more visitors and prospective clients. The dedicated IP is also required when you wish to encrypt the info exchanged between a site and its visitors by using an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

If you use some of our shared hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have selected for the account during the registration process, therefore you can use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can modify each domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from us, you'll be able to use our auto-configuration tool, which 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 have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes only a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a web hosting account before, you will not have any kind of difficulties to acquire and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP rather than the server's shared one and you can make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you can also find all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is accessible or you're already using it. In case that you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you are able to select everything to be set up automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up your certificate within minutes, so you will not need to do anything on your end other than approving your SSL order through e-mail.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS

We give an absolutely free dedicated IP address with each Linux virtual private servers that we offer and if you select a hosting Control Panel on your VPS order page, you'll get an additional dedicated IP free of charge. Your addresses can be used for any objective - a site if you need to set up an SSL certificate or a server IP in case you plan to manage some application such as VOIP software, for example. You can also use the IPs to make child name servers for one or more domain names that you have and then you can set them as NS records for any other domain that you would like to direct to your Virtual Server. In case you need additional dedicated IPs, it will take you just a few clicks in your billing Control Panel to order them and they will be allocated to your server very quickly.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting

As you will be able to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all our plans come with three dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you would like to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you can use the IPs that we provide for free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any website name that you have 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 an independent provider. In case you need more IP addresses than the three our plans feature, you can purchase extra ones in increments of 3 either during the signup process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
