A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the net which is given to a device or a website. Shared website hosting servers usually have plenty of sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs which aren't shared with anyone else. Even when you use a typical shared account, however, you're able to buy a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your websites - one or a few. As this can contribute to the speed of asite, it is more likely that the site will get greater search engine result positions. Certainly, this isn't the only factor, but it is likely to help you find more website visitors and prospective clients. The dedicated IP is also necessary if you intend to encode the information exchanged between a website and its visitors with an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
When you use a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform, you're 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, Great Britain or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains section 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 websites they are allotted to. When you wish to use an SSL certificate so as to protect the information of your site visitors and you get it from us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't need to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion board where users can share their opinion about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you acquire a semi-dedicated server account through us, you will have the opportunity to get as many dedicated IP addresses as you'd like depending on the needs you have. It takes just a few clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to buy your new IP and a couple of more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very easy and your website will start opening from your new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will enable you to view all the IPs which you are able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. If you want to use an SSL certificate on any of your sites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and install the certificate once you send your order, so you don't have to modify anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account manually.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting
All the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we offer feature three dedicated IP addresses as standard and cost-free. You can employ them for any purpose based on the content that you have on your server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients may use to redirect domain names to their hosting accounts, etc. You will also be able to get additional dedicated IPs from the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones which come with your server. You can acquire the IPs in sets of three and they will be added to your dedicated server shortly after you submit your order, which means that you can start using them without any delays.
