All devices on the Web are identified by a unique number called an IP address, for instance In case you have a website, the domain name that you type to be able to access it is to save you time, but the server where your website files are still has an IP address. Due to the fact that there are many more sites and devices than there are IPs, all of the shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you can obtain a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you may get superior search engine rankings since a dedicated IP generally means a quicker loading website. What is more, you need such an IP when you want to buy an SSL certificate for your website and shield the information that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
When you use a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you'll be able to buy a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the United States, Britain or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains part of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're assigned to. In case you wish to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the information of your site visitors and you acquire it through our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not need 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 opinions about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes no more than a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a web hosting account previously, you won't have any difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP in place of the server's shared one and you're able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you will also find all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. In case that you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you are able to select everything to be installed automatically. Using this feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install your certificate in a couple of minutes, so you will not need to do anything on your end apart from authorizing your SSL order via electronic mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All VPS plans that we supply feature a dedicated IP, so you will not share your IP with some other customer with another account on the same physical machine. In case you select a web hosting Control Panel for the server during the signup process, you'll get an additional dedicated IP as well and you'll be able to use it for any content which you host on your VPS - an Internet site, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etc. In case you need more IP addresses, you can order them as an extra upgrade from your billing Control Panel and they will be assigned to your server in a matter of minutes. You can manage your IPs with ease through your hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you will receive to manage the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
In case you purchase a dedicated server, you probably want to run some web application or host a number of Internet sites, so we provide three dedicated IPs gratis with each and every package and you are able to use them as you see fit - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain that you have registered here or via another company. The aforementioned option is really useful when you use the dedicated server to host customers' Internet sites as it'll give you authority and anonymity as a website hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add additional IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, therefore you are able to go ahead and use the brand new dedicated IP addresses just a couple of minutes after you send your order.
