All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a specific number called an IP address, for instance When you have a website, the domain that you enter to be able to access it is to save you time, however the server where the website files are still has an IP address. Since there are a lot more websites and devices than there're IP addresses, all the shared web hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you'll be able to get a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you'll get improved search engine rankings because a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading site. Also, you need such an IP if you intend to obtain an SSL certificate for your site and secure the data that visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

If you use some of our shared web hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account with ease and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've picked for your account during the sign-up process, so you're able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can adjust each domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from us, you are able to use our auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes only a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a web hosting account previously, you will not experience any kind of difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP in place of the server's shared one and you can make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also view all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you're already using it. If you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you will be able to select everything to be installed automatically. Using this particular feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install the certificate within minutes, so you shall not have to do anything on your end other than approving the SSL request through electronic mail.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting

If you obtain a dedicated server, you probably would like to run a web application or host a lot of Internet sites, so we supply 3 dedicated IP addresses absolutely free with every single plan and you are able to use them as you see fit - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name that you have registered here or via another company. The last option is really helpful when you use your dedicated server to host users' Internet sites as it'll give you credibility and anonymity as a hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add extra IP addresses as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, therefore you are able to go ahead and start using your brand new dedicated IP addresses just a couple of minutes after you send your order.
