A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the web that's allotted to a device or a site. Shared web hosting servers usually have a lot of websites under a single IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs that are not shared with others. Even if you use a common shared account, however, you will be able to purchase a dedicated IP address that will be used just by your websites - one or a few. As this can contribute to the speed of asite, it's much more likely that the website will get superior search engine result positions. Of course, that isn't the sole factor, but it can help you have more website visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also needed when you wish to secure the info exchanged between a website and its visitors with an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting
If you use some of our web hosting packages, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without any difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have chosen for the account during the sign-up process, therefore you are able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. 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 since you can edit each and every domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through us, you will be able to use our auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you wish to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you get a semi-dedicated server account through us, you'll get the option to get as many dedicated IP addresses as you like depending on your needs. It takes just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to order your new IP and a couple of more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is really easy and your website will start loading from the new IP address within minutes. Hepsia will enable you to see all the IPs which you will be able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. Provided you'd like to use an SSL certificate on some of your sites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which can assign a new IP and install the certificate the moment you upload your order, so you won't have to customize anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
In case you obtain a dedicated server, you probably want to run some web app or host a lot of websites, so we supply three dedicated IP addresses at no charge with every single plan and you will be able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain which you've registered here or through another company. The aforementioned option is very useful if you use your dedicated server to host customers' websites as it'll give you authority and anonymity as a web hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add more IP addresses as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, therefore you are able to go ahead and take advantage of your brand new dedicated IPs several minutes after you submit your order.
