A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the Internet that's given to a device or a website. Shared website hosting servers usually have plenty of websites under the same IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs which are not shared with anybody else. Even if you use a regular shared account, however, you're able to acquire a dedicated IP address that will be used just by your sites - one or a few. As this can contribute to the speed of thesite, it's more likely that the site will get better search engine result positions. Certainly, this isn't the sole factor, but it can help you have more site visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also required if you wish to encode the info exchanged between a site and its visitors through an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
Using a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to get a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks no matter where your account is - in the US, the UK or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains part of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're allotted to. When you wish to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the info of your website visitors and you acquire it through us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't need to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a community forum where users can share opinions about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes no more than a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a hosting account before, you won't experience any kind of difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP address other than the server's shared one and you can make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also view all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is accessible or you are already using it. In case that you want an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you'll be able to select everything to be set up automatically. Using this feature, our system will modify 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 won't have to do anything on your end except for approving your SSL request through email.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
Our Linux VPS web hosting service come with one dedicated IP as standard and if you order a website hosting Control Panel (cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia) during the signup process, you will get an additional one too for free. You can employ them as you decide - to access website content, to manage a web app, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website that you have and use the latter for any other website that you would like to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you will be able to take care of all of the plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will enable you to order more dedicated IPs in case you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them instantly.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Since all our dedicated servers offer three dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans as standard, we'll give you a head start if you want to run any software that requires this type of an IP. We provide them for free and you are able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain that you host, an SSL certificate for any website on your server, a software server (games, VOIP), etcetera. Through the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll receive to control renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you will also be able to order more dedicated IPs in groups of three whenever you want. They'll be assigned to your server in a few minutes, so you can start using them for your websites and web-based apps without delay.
