A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the web which is given to a device or a site. Shared hosting servers usually have a large number of websites under the same IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs that are not shared with others. Even if you use a common shared account, however, it is possible to acquire a dedicated IP address that will be in use just by your sites - one or a few. As this can add up to the speed of yoursite, it is much more likely that the website will get better search engine result positions. Certainly, this is not the only factor, but it can help you get more site visitors and prospective clients. The dedicated IP is also needed if you'd like to encrypt the info exchanged between the site and its visitors by using an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

When you use some of our shared hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP 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've selected for your account throughout the sign-up process, which means that you will be able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can modify each and every domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through us, you can use our auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you want to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you get a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will get the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IPs as you would like depending on the needs you have. It takes just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to order a new IP and a couple of more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The 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 IPs that you will be able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. Provided you would like to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and set up the certificate once you submit your order, so you don't need to customize anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Due to the fact that it's possible to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all our plans feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you plan to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs that we supply without charge. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you have registered through us or elsewhere and then employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you own a web 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 our packages provide you with, you're able to buy extra ones in increments of three either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
