A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the web which is given to a device or a site. Shared hosting servers usually have plenty of sites 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's possible to acquire a dedicated IP address that will be in use just by your sites - one or a few. As this can add up to the speed of yourwebsite, it is more likely that the website will get better search engine result rankings. Certainly, this isn't the only factor, but it is likely to help you find more site visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also necessary if you wish to encrypt the info exchanged between a website and its visitors using an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting

If you use some of our cloud web hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account with ease and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've selected for your account during the registration process, so you will be able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for instance, while 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 area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from us, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you would like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from us, you will get the option to acquire as many dedicated IPs as you like depending on your preferences. It takes a few clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to acquire a new IP and a couple of more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is really easy and your website will start opening from your new IP address in no time. Hepsia will allow you to see all of the IP addresses which you can use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. If you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and install the certificate the moment you send your order, so you do not have to modify anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

Our Linux VPS servers include one dedicated IP address by default and in case you pick a website hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, Hepsia, cPanel) during the registration process, you will obtain an additional one as well completely free. You're able to use them the way you like - to access site content, to run a web app, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain that you have and use the latter for any other domain that you need to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you'll be able to control all plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain registrations will allow you to order extra dedicated IP addresses if you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them straight away.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All of the Linux dedicated servers that we supply include three dedicated IP addresses as standard and free of charge. You're able to employ them for any kind of purpose based on the content that you have on your server - a 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 clients can use to point domains to their web hosting accounts, and much more. What's more, you can get extra dedicated IP addresses from the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with the plan. You're able to get the IPs in groups of three and they shall be added to your dedicated server shortly after you submit your order, which means that you can use them without delays.
