All devices on the Web are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, for example If you have a site, the domain name that you type to open it is for your convenience, but the server where the website files are still has an IP. Because there are many more sites and devices than there're IP addresses, all the shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, whereas with a dedicated server you'll have 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 advantage would be that you may get improved search engine rankings since a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading website. In addition, you need such an IP if you would like to obtain an SSL certificate for your website and shield the information that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Hosting
If you use any of our hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have selected for the account during the registration process, so you will be able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each and every domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through us, you can use our 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 Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with our semi-dedicated server packages, will make it very easy to buy a dedicated IP address and use it for any site that you have in your account irrespective of whether it is under a domain or a subdomain. With just a few clicks you're able to order the IP and when our system assigns it, you can set it for one or multiple websites through the Hosted Domains part of the Control Panel. In the same place you will also be able to see what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, a list of the dedicated IP addresses as well as if and what site they're assigned to? Provided the IP you will need is for an SSL certificate, you can take advantage of our user-friendly SSL wizard which will make the whole process really easy as it'll request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and then install the SSL without any action on your side aside from placing the order.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated web hosting plans that we provide include 3 dedicated IP addresses as standard and free of charge. You can use them for any purpose depending on the content that you've got on your 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 that your customers may use to point domains to their website hosting accounts, and many other things. In addition, you can purchase extra dedicated IP addresses via the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with the server. You will be able to get the IPs in groups of three and they will be added to your dedicated server right after you send your order, so that you can start using them without delays.
