All devices on the Web are recognized by a special number called an IP address, for example When you have a site, the domain name that you enter in order to open it is to save you time, but the server where your site files are still has an IP. Because there are far more websites and devices than there are IPs, all shared web hosting servers have a number of websites under the same IP, whereas using a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you will be able to acquire a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you will get improved search engine positions as a dedicated IP usually means a quicker loading website. Also, you need such an IP in case you would like to acquire an SSL certificate for your website and secure the data that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting
If you use some of our cloud web hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP to your account without any difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have chosen for your account during the sign-up process, which means that you can take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can modify each domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from our company, you are able to use our auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you'd like to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes only a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a web hosting account previously, you will not experience any difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP. Each domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP in place of the server's shared one and you can make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you can also find all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. If you want an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you are able to select everything to be installed automatically. When you use this feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install the certificate within minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end except for authorizing the SSL request through electronic mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
If you purchase a VPS server from our company, you will get one dedicated IP address by default and a second one if you acquire a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You are able to use the IPs for any 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 website that you would like to host. You can even add extra dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account every time you need them. This can be done from the billing Control Panel that you will obtain so as to control renewals, upgrade purchases and domain name registrations and it will take just a few clicks. Shortly after you upload your order, the additional IP addresses will be available, so you're able to use them as you see fit.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Since our dedicated servers come with 3 dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans as standard, we will give you a serious advantage if you want to run any application that requires such an IP. We provide them at zero cost and you are able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain which you host, an SSL certificate for any site on the server, a software server (online games, VOIP), and so on. Through the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll get to organize renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you can also buy more dedicated IP addresses in sets of three at any time. They will be assigned to your server within a few minutes, so that you can start using them for your sites and web-based apps right away.
