A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the web that's assigned to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have a multitude of websites under a single IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs which aren't shared with anybody else. Even if you use a standard shared account, however, you will be able to buy a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your websites - one or a few. Because this can add up to the speed of thesite, it is more likely that the website will get greater search engine result positions. Certainly, this isn't the sole factor, but it can help you get more website visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also necessary if you wish to encode the info exchanged between the site and its visitors using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting
When you use a shared web hosting account on our cloud platform, you'll be able to buy a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks no matter where your account is - in the United States, the United Kingdom or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains area of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're assigned to. If you wish to use an SSL certificate to protect the info of your visitors and you acquire it from us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't need to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion board where users can share their opinion about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you buy a semi-dedicated server account from us, you will have the option to obtain as many dedicated IPs as you like depending on your needs. It takes just a few clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to obtain a new IP and a couple of more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very simple and your website will start loading from your new IP address in a few minutes. Hepsia will enable you to see all of the IP addresses which you're able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. If you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and set up the certificate as soon as you submit your order, so you don't have to customize anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting
If you get a virtual private server from our company, you will receive a dedicated IP address by default and an additional one when you acquire a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You are able to use the IPs for any kind of purpose - a website, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you'll be able to use to point to your VPS any domain name that you plan to host. Additionally, you can add extra dedicated IP addresses to your VPS account every time you need them. You can do this through the billing Control Panel that you will get in order to control renewals, upgrade purchases and domain name registrations and it will take just a few clicks. Soon after you upload your order, the extra IP addresses will be accessible, so you'll be able to use them as you see fit.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Due to the fact that you'll be able to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all of our packages feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you want to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you can use the IPs which we provide you with absolutely free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you've registered through our company or any place else and then employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you manage a web hosting company, for example, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. When you need more IP addresses than the three our plans provide you with, you are able to get additional ones in increments of 3 either throughout the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
