All devices on the Web are identified by a special number called an IP address, such as When you have a site, the domain name that you enter to load it is to save you time, yet the server where the site files are still has an IP address. Since there are many more sites and devices than there're IPs, all of the shared hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, while using a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you'll be able to acquire a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you will enjoy better search engine positions as a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading website. Furthermore, you need such an IP if you plan to buy an SSL certificate for your website and secure the information that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting
When you use a web hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to purchase a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks no matter where your account is - in the USA, the UK or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains section of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're allotted to. In case you want to use an SSL certificate to secure the information of your visitors and you acquire it from our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a message board where users can share their opinion about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to add one or several dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated hosting package and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will allow you to see the available IPs and to monitor those that are in use in no time. Provided you wish to get a new IP for an SSL certificate, you will be able to use the auto-configuration function, which is available in our SSL order wizard. If you activate this feature, you won't have to do anything after you submit your order as our system will request a dedicated IP address, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, and then set up the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without any action on your end. That way, you're able to secure the info that visitors submit on your site even if you lack previous experience with such matters.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting
If you get a virtual private server from us, you will be given one dedicated IP address as standard and a second one in case you acquire a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IPs for any sort of purpose - a site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you're able to use to point to your VPS any website which you intend to host. Also, you can add extra dedicated IP addresses to your VPS account when you need them. You can do this via the billing Control Panel that you will obtain to take care of renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it takes just a couple of clicks. Soon after you send your order, the additional IP addresses will be accessible, so you will be able to use them as you see fit.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you need a dedicated server, you probably plan to run a web app or host a number of Internet sites, so we supply 3 dedicated IPs at no charge with each and every package and you can use them the way you like - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain which you have registered here or through another company. The last option is really helpful if you use the dedicated server to host customers' Internet sites since it will give you authority and anonymity as a website hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add more IP addresses as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes only a few clicks in the Upgrades section, so you'll be able to go ahead and use the brand new dedicated IPs several minutes after you send your order.
