A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the Internet that is allotted to a device or a website. Shared website hosting servers usually have a multitude of websites under the same IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs which are not shared with others. Even when you use a common shared account, however, you'll be able to purchase a dedicated IP address that will be in use just by your websites - one or a few. As this can contribute to the speed of thesite, it is much more likely that the site will get greater search engine result positions. Of course, this is not the only factor, but it is likely to help you have more visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also required if you wish to encrypt the information exchanged between a site and its visitors through an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
If you use some of our shared hosting
plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have chosen for the account during the sign-up process, thus you'll be able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can modify each and every domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL through us, you will be able to use our auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you wish to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you buy a semi-dedicated server
account through our company, you will get the opportunity to get as many dedicated IPs as you'd like depending on the needs you have. It will take a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to acquire a new IP and several more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is really easy and your site will start loading from the new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will enable you to view all the IPs which you can use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. Provided you'd like to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you submit your order, so you don't need to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting
In case you get a virtual private server
from us, you will have one dedicated IP address by default and another one in case you obtain a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You'll be able to use the IPs for any kind of purpose - a website, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you are able to use to point to your VPS any domain which you plan to host. Additionally, you can add more dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account if you need them. You can do this through the billing Control Panel that you'll get so as to control renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it will take just a couple of clicks. After you post your order, the extra IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you are able to use them the way you like.
