All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a specific number called an IP address, for instance 123.123.123.123. When you have a site, the domain that you enter to open it is for your convenience, however the server where the website files are still has an IP. Since there're far more websites and devices than there are IPs, all of the shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under the same IP, while when you use a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you're able to get a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you will enjoy far better search engine positions since a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading website. Furthermore, you need such an IP when you want to obtain an SSL certificate for your website and secure the info that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting
If you use any of our cloud website hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account in no time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have chosen for your account during the signup process, so you'll be able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can edit each and every domain or subdomain individually from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through our company, you're 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 Hosting
When you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from us, you have the opportunity to obtain as many dedicated IP addresses as you would like depending on your needs. It will take just a few clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to acquire a new IP plus a few more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very easy and your website will start loading from your new IP address in no time. Hepsia will allow you to see all the IPs that you're able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. If you would like to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, which will assign a new IP and install the certificate as soon as you submit your order, so you do not need to customize anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS
All of our Linux VPS include one dedicated IP address as standard and in case you get a hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, cPanel, Hepsia) during the signup process, you will get a second one as well completely free. You're able to employ them the way you like - to access web content, to manage a web app, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name that you have and use the latter for any other domain that you plan to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you are able to take care of all plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain registrations will enable you to order more dedicated IP addresses if you need them for any purpose. A few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you will be able to use them instantly.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
All of the dedicated hosting that we offer include three dedicated IP addresses as standard and free of charge. You are able to employ them for any kind of purpose based on the content that you've got on your server - an online game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your customers may use to point domain names to their website hosting accounts, and much more. In addition, you can order more dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with your server. You'll be able to acquire the IPs in groups of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server soon after you submit your order, so that you can start using them without any delays.
