All devices on the Internet are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, for example When you have a website, the domain that you type to open it is for your convenience, however the server where the site files are still has an IP address. Because there're many more sites and devices than there are IP addresses, all the shared hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, whereas with a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you are able to acquire a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you will have improved search engine positions since a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading site. Also, you need such an IP when you would like to buy an SSL certificate for your site and protect the information that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
When you use a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform, you can purchase a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks no matter where your account is - in the USA, the UK or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains part of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are allotted to. When you would like to use an SSL certificate so as to secure the information of your site visitors and you acquire it through us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion forum where users can share their opinion about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you purchase a semi-dedicated server account through us, you'll get the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IP addresses as you'd like depending on the needs you have. It takes a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to buy a new IP plus a couple of more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very easy and your site will start opening from your new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will allow you to view all of the IP addresses which you are able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. If you'd like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, which will assign a new IP and set up the certificate as soon as you submit your order, so you will not need to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers come with one dedicated IP address as standard and when you choose a website hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, cPanel, Hepsia) during the registration process, you will acquire a second one as well absolutely free. You'll be able to employ them as you see fit - to access online content, to run a web app, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain that you have and use the latter for any other website that you want to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you're able to take care of all the plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain registrations will enable you to order extra dedicated IPs if you need them for any purpose. Just a few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them right away.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
As you'll be able to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all of our plans come with three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you want to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you will be able to use the IPs which we supply for free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you've registered with us or elsewhere and employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you have a website hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent provider. If you need more IP addresses than the three the plans include, you can get extra ones in increments of three either throughout the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
