A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the world wide web which is given to a device or a website. Shared web hosting servers usually have plenty of websites under a single IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs that aren't shared with anyone else. Even when you use a typical shared account, however, it is possible to buy a dedicated IP address that will be used just by your sites - one or a few. Because this can contribute to the speed of yoursite, it's more likely that the website will get greater search engine result rankings. Of course, that isn't the sole factor, but it can help you get more website visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also needed if you would like to secure the info exchanged between the website and its visitors with an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

If you use some of our shared website hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account with ease and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've picked for your account during the signup process, which means that you'll be able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can modify each domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through us, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you want to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you buy a semi-dedicated server account from us, you will get the option to get as many dedicated IPs as you'd like depending on your needs. It will take a few clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to acquire your new IP and several more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very easy and your site will start opening from the new IP address in a few minutes. Hepsia will enable you to view all IPs that you can use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which will assign a new IP and set up the certificate as soon as you send your order, so you will not need to change anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

In case you buy a dedicated server, you probably want to run some web application or host a number of Internet sites, so we provide three dedicated IP addresses at no charge with every single package and you will be able to use them as you see fit - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name which you have registered here or through another company. The last mentioned option is really useful in case you use the dedicated server to host clients' websites since it'll give you credibility and anonymity as a website hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add extra IPs as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes just a few clicks in the Upgrades section, therefore you are able to go ahead and use your new dedicated IP addresses several minutes after you send your order.
