All devices on the Web are recognized by a special number called an IP address, for instance If you have a website, the domain name that you type to open it is for your convenience, yet the server where the website files are still has an IP address. Considering that there are far more websites and devices than there are IP addresses, all shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under the very same IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you can acquire a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you'll have improved search engine rankings as a dedicated IP generally means a quicker loading site. What is more, you need such an IP if you intend to acquire an SSL certificate for your site and shield the information that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

If you use any of our shared website hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account with ease and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have selected for your account throughout the registration process, therefore you are 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 website, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can adjust each and every domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from our company, you're able to use the 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 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 simple and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a website hosting account previously, you won't have any kind of difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP in place of the server's shared one and you'll be able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you will also view all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is accessible or you are already using it. In case that you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you're able to select everything to be set up automatically. When you use this feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up your certificate within minutes, so you won't have to do anything on your end except for authorizing the SSL request through e-mail.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting

In case you buy a virtual private server from our company, you'll receive a dedicated IP address by default and an extra one in case you get a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IP addresses for any purpose - an Internet site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you're able to use to point to your VPS any domain name which you wish to host. Additionally, you can add more dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account any time you need them. This can be done through the billing Control Panel that you will get in order to take care of renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations and it takes no more than a couple of clicks. Shortly after you upload your order, the additional IP addresses will be accessible, so you can use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting

As you're able to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all our plans feature three dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you would like to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs that we supply free of charge. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you've registered through us or anywhere else and employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you manage a hosting company, for example, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. When you need more IPs than the three the packages feature, you will be able to buy extra ones in increments of three either during the registration process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
