All devices on the Internet are identified by a specific number called an IP address, for example 123.123.123.123. When you have a website, the domain name that you enter in order to access it is to save you time, yet the server where the site files are still has an IP. Because there're far more websites and devices than there are IPs, all shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under the very same IP, whereas using a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you're able to get a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you may get improved search engine positions because a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading website. Also, you need such an IP when you intend to get an SSL certificate for your website and shield the info that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting
When you use some of our web hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP to your account without any difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have picked for the account throughout the signup process, therefore you will be able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can modify each domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL from us, you can use the auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you want to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes just a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a hosting account before, you won't encounter any difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP as an alternative to the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you will also find all IPs that your websites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is available or you are already using it. If you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you can select everything to be installed automatically. Using this particular feature, our system will change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install your certificate within minutes, so you shall not need to do anything on your end except for approving the SSL request via email.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All of the VPS plans that we provide feature a dedicated IP, so you will not share your IP with another customer with an account on the same server. If you choose a web hosting Control Panel for the server throughout the registration process, you will receive a second dedicated IP as well and you are able to use it for any content that you host on the VPS - a site, an app, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, and the like. In case you require more IPs, you'll be able to order them as an extra upgrade from your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server within a matter of minutes. You can take care of your IPs without any difficulty from your web hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you'll obtain to manage the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All the dedicated web hosting plans that we offer include three dedicated IP addresses as standard and absolutely free. You're able to use them for any type of purpose depending on the content that you have on the server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your customers can use to redirect domain names to their website hosting accounts, and many more. In addition, you can obtain additional dedicated IP addresses from the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones which come with the plan. You'll be able to purchase the IPs in sets of three and they shall be added to your dedicated server soon after you submit your order, which means that you can start using them without delays.
