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

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

We offer dedicated IP addresses with all our shared hosting whatever the data center location and you are able to obtain one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. A new section will appear inside your account and you are able to request, delete or view your IPs with a few clicks. You will be able to choose what number of sites or subdomains will use a certain IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to every hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be your main site, which uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer goods or services on the net and it might have a dedicated IP address combined with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP that a domain uses via the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set a couple of of your websites to use a single dedicated IP given that there's no SSL activated for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account through us, you will have the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IP addresses as you need depending on your preferences. It takes just a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to purchase your new IP and a couple of more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very simple and your website will start loading from your new IP address in a few minutes. Hepsia will enable you to see all IP addresses that you are able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate on any of your sites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which will assign a new IP and set up the certificate once you submit your order, so you don't need to customize anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

In case you acquire a VPS server from our company, you'll be given a dedicated IP address as standard and an additional one if you get a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You'll be able to use the IP addresses for any sort of purpose - a website, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you'll be able to use to point to your VPS any domain which you would like to host. You may also add more dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account any time you need them. This can be done from the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain to take care of renewals, upgrade purchases and domain name registrations and it takes no more than a couple of clicks. After you send your order, the extra IP addresses will be accessible, so you'll be able to use them the way you like.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All of the dedicated servers that we supply include three dedicated IP addresses by default and for free. You can employ them for any purpose according to the content that you have on the server - a video game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients can use to redirect domain names to their hosting accounts, and much more. You can also purchase extra dedicated IPs via the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with the plan. You can acquire the IPs in sets of three and they will be added to your dedicated server right after you send your order, which means that you can start using them without any delays.
