A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the net that's given to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have plenty of websites under the very same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs which are not shared with anyone else. Even when you use a regular shared account, however, you'll be able to get a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your websites - one or a few. Because this can add up to the speed of yoursite, it is much more likely that the website will get better search engine result positions. Of course, that isn't the sole factor, but it can help you have more site visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also required if you want to encrypt the info exchanged between a website and its visitors with an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting

When you use a website hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to obtain a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks wherever your account is - in the US, the United Kingdom or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains section of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're allotted to. In case you want to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the info of your site visitors and you get it from our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't need to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion board where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for example.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes only a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a website hosting account previously, you won't have any difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP address. Each domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP instead of the server's shared one and you can make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you will also view all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. In case that you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you'll be able to select everything to be set up automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up the certificate within a matter of minutes, so you will not need to do anything on your end except for approving the SSL order via e-mail.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Because you are able to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all our plans come with three dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you would like to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs that we provide you with for free. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you have registered through our company or any place else and employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you own a website hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. When you need more IP addresses than the three our plans provide you with, you're able to buy additional ones in increments of three either during the registration process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
