All devices on the World Wide Web are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, for example When you have a website, the domain name that you enter to be able to open it is to save you time, however the server where your site files are still has an IP address. As there're far more sites and devices than there are IPs, all of the shared web hosting servers have a number of websites under the very same IP, whereas using a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you can acquire a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you'll have better search engine positions as a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading website. What is more, you need such an IP if you want to buy an SSL certificate for your website and protect the info that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
When you use a shared website hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to acquire a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks wherever your account is - in the USA, Great Britain or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains section of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're assigned to. If you would like to use an SSL certificate so as to protect the info of your website visitors and you acquire it from us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't need to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion board where users can share their opinion about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel, that is supplied with our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it very easy to get a dedicated IP and use it for any website that you have in your account regardless if it's under a domain or a subdomain. With just a few clicks you will be able to order the IP and when our system assigns it, you will be able to set it for one or several sites from the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel. In the same place you'll also be able to find what IP is used by each and every domain or subdomain, a long list of the dedicated IP addresses as well as if and what website they're assigned to? In case the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take full advantage of our user-friendly SSL wizard which will make the overall process very easy because it will request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and then set up the SSL without the need of any action on your side apart from placing the order.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
Our VPS hosting plans include one dedicated IP by default and when you order a website hosting Control Panel (cPanel, Hepsia, DirectAdmin) during the signup process, you'll get an extra one too free of cost. You will be able to use them the way you like - to access web content, to run a web app, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name which you have and use the latter for any other domain that you wish to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you will be able to control all of the plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain name registrations will allow you to order additional dedicated IP addresses in case you need them for any purpose. A few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them straight away.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All of the dedicated web hosting plans that we offer come with three dedicated IP addresses as standard and absolutely free. You are able to use them for any type of purpose based on the content that you've got on your server - a video game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your customers may use to direct domain names to their website hosting accounts, and many other things. In addition, you can obtain additional dedicated IP addresses from the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with your server. You will be able to buy the IPs in groups of three and they shall be added to your dedicated server soon after you submit your order, so that you can start using them without delays.
