A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the net that's assigned to a device or a website. Shared website hosting servers usually have a number of websites under a single IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs that aren't shared with anyone else. Even when you use a common shared account, however, you are able to buy a dedicated IP address that will be in use just by your sites - one or a few. Because this can add up to the speed of yoursite, it's much more likely that the site will get better search engine result positions. Certainly, this isn't the only factor, but it can help you have more website visitors and prospective clients. The dedicated IP is also necessary if you would like to secure the information exchanged between the website and its visitors with an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
We supply dedicated IP addresses with all our shared hosting regardless of the data center location and you are able to buy one or several IPs from your Hepsia Control Panel. A new section will show up inside your account and you're able to request, view or delete your IPs with several clicks. You'll be able to choose how many domains or subdomains will use a given IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to any hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be the main website, that uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer services or goods on the net and it might have a dedicated IP address in addition to an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a site uses via the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set some of your websites to use a single dedicated IP given that there is no SSL installed for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes no more than a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a hosting account before, you will not experience any kind of difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP rather than the server's shared one and you can make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you can also view all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is available or you're already using it. In case that you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you're able to select everything to be installed automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up the certificate in a couple of minutes, so you shall not have to do anything on your end other than approving your SSL order via e-mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All of our Linux VPS servers feature one dedicated IP address by default and when you get a hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, Hepsia, cPanel) during the registration process, you'll get a second one as well completely free. You are able to employ them as you decide - to access online content, to run a web app, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name which you have and use the latter for any other domain that you wish to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you are able to manage all plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will allow you to order additional dedicated IP addresses in case 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
All the Linux dedicated web hosting plans that we offer feature three dedicated IP addresses by default and for free. You are able to employ them for any purpose according to the content that you've got on the server - an online game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your customers can use to point domain names to their website hosting accounts, and much more. You will also be able to order more dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with the plan. You're able to buy the IPs in sets of three and they shall be added to your dedicated server soon after you send your order, so that you can start using them with no delays.
