A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the web which is assigned to a device or a site. Shared web hosting servers usually have a multitude of websites under the same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs that are not shared with anybody else. Even when you use a common shared account, however, you will be able to obtain a dedicated IP address that will be in use just by your websites - one or a few. Since this can add up to the speed of yoursite, it's more likely that the site will get better search engine result positions. Certainly, this is not the only factor, but it is likely to help you get more visitors and prospective clients. The dedicated IP is also necessary when you wish to encode the information exchanged between the site and its visitors through an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

If you use any of our web hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP to your account without difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have chosen for the account during the sign-up process, thus it's possible to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can edit each and every domain or subdomain individually from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through us, you can use the auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

With just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to add one or several dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated hosting service and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will allow you to view the available IPs and to keep track of those that are in use with ease. If you would like to get a new IP for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration function, that's available in our SSL order wizard. If you activate this feature, you won't need to do anything after you send in your order because our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, and then install the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. That way, you'll be able to secure the details that visitors post on your website even when you lack previous experience with this kind of matters.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

All of our VPS servers include one dedicated IP as standard and if you get a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, DirectAdmin, cPanel) during the signup process, you'll obtain a second one too without charge. You are able to use them as you see fit - to access online content, to run a web app, to set up 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'd like to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you are able to control all the plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will allow you to order additional dedicated IPs if you need them for any purpose. Just a few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you will be able to use them without delay.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

If you purchase a dedicated server, you probably plan to run some web app or host a number of sites, so we supply 3 dedicated IP addresses for free with each plan and you are able to use them the way you like - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain that you've registered here or through another company. The last option is really useful in case you use your dedicated server to host users' websites since it'll give you trustworthiness and anonymity as a web hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add extra IP addresses as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, so you're able to go ahead and employ the new dedicated IP addresses just a few minutes after you submit your order.
