A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the net that is assigned to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have numerous sites under a single IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs which are not shared with others. Even if you use a common shared account, however, it's possible to acquire a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your websites - one or a few. Since this can add up to the speed of awebsite, it's much more likely that the site will get superior search engine result rankings. Of course, this is not the only factor, but it can help you find more visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also needed if you want to encrypt the info exchanged between the website and its visitors using an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

If you use any of our shared website hosting packages, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've picked for your account throughout the sign-up process, so you're able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, 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 separately from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from us, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you wish to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes no more than a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a web hosting account previously, you won't encounter any kind of difficulties to acquire and assign a dedicated IP. Each domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP address instead of the server's shared one and you are able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you can also find all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is free 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 can select everything to be installed automatically. When you use this feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install your certificate within a matter of minutes, so you won't need to do anything on your end other than approving your SSL request through e-mail.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

All Linux VPS plans that we offer feature a dedicated IP, so you will not share the IP with another client with another account on the very same server. In case you choose a web hosting Control Panel for the server throughout the registration process, you will get an additional dedicated IP too and you're able to use it for any content that you host on the VPS - a website, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, and so on. If you would like to have more IPs, you will be able to order them as an extra upgrade via your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server within a matter of minutes. You'll be able to manage your IPs without difficulty from your website hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel which you will receive to take care of the virtual machine.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All the dedicated servers that we offer feature 3 dedicated IP addresses as standard and free of charge. You're able to employ them for any purpose based on the content that you've got on the server - an online game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients may use to point domains to their website hosting accounts, and many more. You will also be able to order additional dedicated IPs via the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones which come with your server. You're able to get the IPs in sets of three and they will be added to your dedicated server soon after you send your order, which means that you can use them without any delays.
