A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the net that is allotted to a device or a website. Shared web hosting servers usually have a lot of sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs which are not shared with others. Even when you use a typical shared account, however, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your websites - one or a few. Since this can add up to the speed of thesite, it's much more likely that the site will get better search engine result rankings. Of course, this isn't the sole factor, but it is likely to help you get more site visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also necessary when you wish to encrypt the information exchanged between the site and its visitors by using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
If you host your websites on our up-to-date cloud platform and you have a shared hosting plan, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only a couple of clicks. The aforementioned option is available in all of the data center facilities where we supply services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice during the registration process, you can acquire a dedicated IP address for your websites. You can add / remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. If any of the IPs that you obtain will be used for an SSL certificate, you can activate the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and then our system will request and assign the IP before it installs your certificate automatically. Our versatile platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP address for various websites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you buy a semi-dedicated server account from us, you have the option to acquire as many dedicated IP addresses as you like depending on the needs you have. It takes just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to buy a new IP and a few more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very simple and your website will start opening from the new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will allow you to view all of the IPs which you are able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which can assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you send your order, so you do not need to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
Our Linux VPS servers provide you with one dedicated IP as standard and when you get a website hosting Control Panel (cPanel, Hepsia, DirectAdmin) during the signup process, you'll get a second one too for free. You will be able to employ them the way you like - to access web content, to run a web app, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name that you have and use the latter for any other domain that you need to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you can take care of all the plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain name registrations will enable you to order additional dedicated IP addresses when you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them straight away.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All of the Linux dedicated servers that we supply feature three dedicated IP addresses by default and free of charge. You can use them for any purpose depending on the content that you have 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 can use to point domains to their hosting accounts, and many more. You will also be able to order more dedicated IPs via the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with your plan. You are able to obtain the IPs in groups of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server right after you submit your order, which means that you can start using them without any delays.
