All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a specific number called an IP address, such as If you have a website, the domain name that you enter to load it is to save you time, but the server where the site files are still has an IP. Considering that there are a lot more websites and devices than there're IPs, all shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under the same IP, while with a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you can acquire a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you'll enjoy far better search engine rankings because a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading website. Also, you need such an IP in case you intend to buy an SSL certificate for your website and secure the info that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting
When you use any of our website hosting packages, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have chosen for the account throughout the registration process, therefore it is possible to take 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 because you can adjust each and every domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL from us, you're 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 Hosting
When you purchase a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you'll have the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IPs as you need depending on the needs you have. It takes a few clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to order a new IP plus a couple of more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is really easy and your website will start opening from the new IP address in minutes. Hepsia will allow you to see all of the IPs which you're able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. Provided you would like 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, which can assign a new IP and install the certificate the moment you upload your order, so you will not need to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS
If you get a virtual private server from us, you'll get a dedicated IP address by default and a second one when you acquire a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IPs for any purpose - an Internet site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you can use to point to your VPS any website that you plan to host. Additionally, you can add more dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account every time you need them. This can be done via the billing Control Panel that you will obtain to take care of renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it takes no more than a few clicks. Shortly after you post your order, the added IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you'll be able to use them the way you like.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
Since you'll be able to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all our plans feature three dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you want to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs which we provide you with absolutely free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you have registered with us or any place else then employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you have a website hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. In case you need more IP addresses than the three our packages feature, you are able to purchase additional ones in increments of three either throughout the registration process or through your billing Control Panel at any time.
