A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the web that's allotted to a device or a website. Shared web hosting servers usually have a lot of sites under a single IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs which are not shared with others. Even when you use a common shared account, however, you will be able to obtain a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your sites - one or a few. Because this can contribute to the speed of yourwebsite, it's more likely that the website will get superior search engine result rankings. Of course, this is not the only factor, but it is likely to help you have more visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also needed if you'd like to secure the information exchanged between the website and its visitors by using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting
If you use some of our cloud website hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account in no time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've chosen for the account during the sign-up process, so you will be 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 instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can edit each and every domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from our company, you'll be able to use our auto-configuration instrument, that 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
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes just a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a web hosting account previously, you won't experience any kind of difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP instead of the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you will also see 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 can select everything to be set up automatically. With this particular feature, our system will change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install the certificate in a couple of minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end except for authorizing your SSL order via email.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
If you order a dedicated server, you probably would like to run a web app or host a number of sites, so we provide 3 dedicated IPs completely free with each package and you are able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name that you have registered here or via another company. The aforementioned option is very helpful in case you use the dedicated server to host users' websites due to the fact that it will give you credibility and anonymity as a website hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add extra IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you're able to go ahead and use the brand new dedicated IPs a couple of minutes after you send your order.
