A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the web that is allotted to a device or a website. Shared hosting servers usually have a number of websites under the very same IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs which are not shared with anyone else. Even when you use a standard shared account, however, you'll be able to get a dedicated IP address that will be used just by your websites - one or a few. Because this can contribute to the speed of thewebsite, it is much more likely that the website will get improved search engine result positions. Certainly, this isn't the only factor, but it can help you get more visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also needed if you would like to encrypt the information exchanged between a website and its visitors by using an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

If you use some of our shared hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP to your account without any difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've chosen for the account throughout the sign-up process, thus you can use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In 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 because you can edit each and every domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL from us, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you want to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

With only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to add one or a variety of dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated server and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will help you see the available IPs and to keep track of those that are in use in no time. Provided you want to get a new IP for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration function, that is available in our SSL order wizard. When you enable this option, you will not need to do anything after you submit your order because our system will request a dedicated IP address, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, then set up the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without any action on your end. In this way, you will be able to protect the information that visitors post on your website even if you do not have any previous experience with this kind of matters.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

In case you purchase a VPS server from us, you will get a dedicated IP address as standard and an extra one when you acquire a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You will be able to use the IP addresses for any kind of purpose - a website, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you'll be able to use to point to your VPS any domain name which you plan to host. In addition, you can add extra dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account if you need them. You can do this through the billing Control Panel that you'll acquire in order to take care of renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it will take only a few clicks. Shortly after you submit your order, the extra IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you will be able to use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated servers that we supply have 3 dedicated IP addresses as standard and cost-free. You can use them for any purpose according to the content that you have on your server - an online 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 clients can use to point domain names to their hosting accounts, and many more. In addition, you can buy extra dedicated IP addresses from the Upgrades part 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'll be added to your dedicated server shortly after you submit your order, which means that you can use them with no delays.
