A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the Internet that is allotted to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have numerous websites under a single IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs that are not shared with others. Even when you use a standard shared account, however, you will be able to buy a dedicated IP address that will be in use just by your sites - one or a few. Since this can contribute to the speed of yoursite, it is much more likely that the site will get improved search engine result positions. Certainly, this is not the only factor, but it is likely to help you have more visitors and prospective clients. The dedicated IP is also needed when you would like to encode the information exchanged between a website and its visitors through an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
If you use some of our shared hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP to your account without any difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have picked for the account during the sign-up process, so you'll be able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can modify each domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains section 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 are able to use the auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you would like to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes only a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a website hosting account before, you won't encounter any kind of difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP address. Every domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP address in place of the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you can also see all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is free or you're already using it. In case that you want an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you are able to select everything to be installed automatically. With this particular feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install your certificate in a matter of minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end other than authorizing your SSL order via electronic mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All the Linux VPS plans that we provide feature a dedicated IP address, so you won't share your IP with another client with an account on the same physical machine. In case you select a website hosting Control Panel for the server throughout the signup process, you'll get a second dedicated IP too and you can use it for any content that you host on your VPS - a site, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, and so on. In case you need more IPs, you will be able to order them as a further upgrade through your billing Control Panel and they will be assigned to your server within a matter of minutes. You'll be able to control the IPs with ease from your hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you'll get to command the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All Linux dedicated servers that we offer feature three dedicated IP addresses as standard and cost-free. You're able to use them for any kind of 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 website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your customers may use to direct domain names to their hosting accounts, and many other things. In addition, you can order additional dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones which come with the server. You can buy the IPs in groups of three and they will be added to your dedicated server right after you send your order, which means that you can use them without delays.
