A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the Internet that's assigned to a device or a website. Shared web hosting servers usually have plenty of websites under the same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs that are not shared with others. Even if you use a typical shared account, however, it's possible to obtain a dedicated IP address that will be used just by your websites - one or a few. Since this can add up to the speed of asite, it is more likely that the site will get greater search engine result positions. Certainly, this is not the only factor, but it is likely to help you have more site visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also needed if you'd like to encode the information exchanged between the website and its visitors with an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting
If you use any of our shared web 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've picked for the account throughout the sign-up process, so you will be able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can edit each domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from us, you are able to use the auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you'd like to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes just a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a hosting account previously, you will not experience any kind of difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP as an alternative to the server's shared one and you are able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also find all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is available or you're already using it. In case that you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you are able to select everything to be set up automatically. With this feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up your certificate within a matter of minutes, so you won't need to do anything on your end except for authorizing the SSL order via electronic mail.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Since all our dedicated servers feature 3 dedicated IP addresses provided in the plans as standard, we will give you a head start if you'd like to run any app which requires this kind of an IP. We supply them cost-free and you will be able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain that you host, an SSL certificate for any website on the server, a software server (online games, VOIP), and so on. From the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will receive to organize renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you will also be able to obtain more dedicated IP addresses in groups of three whenever you need. They will be assigned to your server within a few minutes, so that you can start using them for your websites and web-based apps right away.
