A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the web which is assigned to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have a large number of websites under a single IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs that are not shared with others. Even when you use a typical shared account, however, you'll be able to obtain a dedicated IP address that will be used just by your websites - one or a few. Since this can add up to the speed of yoursite, it is more likely that the site will get superior search engine result positions. Of course, this is not the sole factor, but it is likely to help you have more website visitors and prospective clients. The dedicated IP is also needed if you'd like to encrypt the information exchanged between a website and its visitors by using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting
We offer dedicated IP addresses with all of our Linux web hosting packages whatever the data center location and you'll be able to purchase one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will show up inside your account and you are able to request, delete or view your IPs with a few clicks. You will be able to decide what number of domains or subdomains will use a given IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to any hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be the main site, that uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer goods or services on the web and it could have a dedicated IP address in addition to an SSL certificate. You can change the IP that a domain uses from 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 sites to use a single dedicated IP given that there is no SSL activated for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from us, you have the option to obtain as many dedicated IPs as you like depending on your preferences. It will take just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to purchase a new IP plus several more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is very easy and your website will start loading from your new IP address within minutes. Hepsia will allow you to view all IP addresses which you are able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. If you want to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which can assign a new IP and install the certificate the moment you send your order, so you won't need to modify anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account manually.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting
If you buy a virtual private server from our company, you will be given a dedicated IP address automatically and a second one when you get a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You will be able to use the IPs for any sort of purpose - a website, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you are able to use to point to your VPS any website which you want to host. In addition, you can add more dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account every time you need them. You can do this through the billing Control Panel that you will get to take care of renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it will take just a couple of clicks. After you submit your order, the extra IP addresses will be accessible, so you will be able to use them as you see fit.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting
Due to the fact that you are able to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our packages come with three dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you would like to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you're able to use the IPs that we provide free of charge. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you have registered with our company or somewhere else then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you own a hosting company, for example, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone provider. If you need more IP addresses than the three the packages feature, you will be able to buy additional ones in increments of 3 either during the signup process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
