A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the web that is assigned to a device or a site. Shared hosting servers usually have a multitude of sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs which are not shared with others. Even if you use a standard shared account, however, you will be able to acquire a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your websites - one or a few. Since this can contribute to the speed of yoursite, it's much more likely that the website will get better search engine result positions. Of course, that isn't the sole factor, but it is likely to help you find more visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also necessary if you want to encode the information exchanged between a site and its visitors through an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

When you use any of our web hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've selected for the account throughout the signup process, therefore you'll be able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each and every domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from us, you can use the auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you want to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will have the opportunity to get as many dedicated IP addresses as you like depending on the needs you have. It will take just a few clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to buy your new IP plus a couple of more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is really easy and your site will start opening from the new IP address in no time. Hepsia will enable you to view all of the IPs that you're able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. Provided you want to use an SSL certificate on any of your sites 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 as soon as you send your order, so you do not need to modify anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Because all our dedicated web hosting plans offer 3 dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans by default, we will give you a head start in case you'd like to run any app which requires this type of an IP. We supply them free of charge and you can use them for as long as you use the server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain which you host, an SSL certificate for any website on your server, a software server (games, VOIP), and so on. Through the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will get to take care of renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you can also buy more dedicated IPs in sets of three at any moment. They will be assigned to your server very quickly, so that you can start using them for your sites and web-based applications right away.
