A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the Internet which is given to a device or a website. Shared web hosting servers usually have a multitude of sites under a single IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs which aren't shared with anyone else. Even if you use a standard shared account, however, it is possible to purchase a dedicated IP address that will be in use just by your sites - one or a few. Because this can add up to the speed of yourwebsite, it is more likely that the site will get better search engine result positions. Certainly, this is not the only factor, but it is likely to help you find more visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also necessary if you would like to encrypt the info exchanged between a site and its visitors with an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

We supply dedicated IPs with all our cloud hosting plans regardless of the data center location and you're able to acquire one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will show up inside your account and you're able to request, delete or view your IPs with a few clicks. You're able to choose how many sites or subdomains will use a particular IP as you can assign one with a couple of clicks to every hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be your main site, that uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer services or goods online and it can have a dedicated IP address together with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a website uses via the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set some of your websites to use one and the same dedicated IP as long as there's no SSL installed for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server account from us, you'll get the option to acquire as many dedicated IPs as you'd like depending on your preferences. It will take just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to order a new IP and a few more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very easy and your site will start loading from your new IP address in minutes. Hepsia will allow you to see all the IPs that you're able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. In case 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 install the certificate the moment you upload your order, so you do not need to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans that we offer have three dedicated IP addresses as standard and for free. You are able to use them for any type of purpose according to the content that you've got on the server - a 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 hosting accounts, and much more. You can also get extra dedicated IPs through the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with the server. You'll be able to acquire the IPs in groups of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server soon after you send your order, which means that you can use them with no delays.
