A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the net which is given to a device or a website. Shared hosting servers usually have plenty of sites under the very same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs that are not shared with anyone else. Even if you use a common shared account, however, it's possible to acquire a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your sites - one or a few. As this can contribute to the speed of awebsite, it's much more likely that the website will get superior search engine result positions. Certainly, that isn't the only factor, but it is likely to help you have more site visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also required if you wish to encode the information exchanged between the website and its visitors using an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting

When you use any of our cloud website hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account with ease and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have picked for your account throughout the signup process, so 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 e-commerce site, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can edit 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 us, you are able to use the auto-configuration tool, 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

If 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 will not encounter any kind of difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP address instead of the server's shared one and you'll be able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you can also find all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you're already using it. If you want an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you'll be able to select everything to be set up automatically. Using this particular feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up the certificate within a matter of minutes, so you shall not have to do anything on your end other than approving your SSL order through e-mail.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Because it is possible to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all of our plans come with three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you want to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you can use the IPs that we supply without charge. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you have registered with us or elsewhere then employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you manage a website hosting company, for example, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. When you need more IP addresses than the three the plans feature, you can get additional ones in increments of three either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
