A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the net which is allotted to a device or a website. Shared website hosting servers usually have a large number of websites under the same IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs which are not shared with others. Even when you use a regular shared account, however, you are able to get a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your websites - one or a few. Since this can contribute to the speed of thesite, it's more likely that the site will get greater search engine result rankings. Certainly, this isn't the sole factor, but it can help you get more site visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also necessary if you would like to encode the info exchanged between the site and its visitors through an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

Using a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to get a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks wherever your account is - in the United States, Great Britain or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains part of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are assigned to. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the information of your site visitors and you acquire it from our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't have to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a message board where users can share opinions about your services, for example.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server account from us, you have the option to acquire as many dedicated IPs as you need depending on your needs. It will take a couple of clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to get your new IP plus a few more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is really easy and your website will start loading from the new IP address in no time. Hepsia will allow you to see all the IPs that you are 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 any of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which will assign a new IP and install the certificate once you submit your order, so you do not need to customize anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All the Linux dedicated servers hosting that we provide have 3 dedicated IP addresses as standard and for free. You can use them for any purpose according to the content that you've got on your server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients can use to point domain names to their web hosting accounts, and many more. You can also acquire more dedicated IP addresses via the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with your plan. You will be able to get the IPs in sets of three and they will be added to your dedicated server shortly after you send your order, so that you can start using them without delays.
