A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the Internet that's assigned to a device or a website. Shared web hosting servers usually have a lot of sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs that aren't shared with anybody else. Even when you use a typical shared account, however, you'll be able to purchase a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your websites - one or a few. As this can contribute to the speed of yoursite, it is much more likely that the site will get improved search engine result positions. Certainly, this is not the sole factor, but it can help you have more website visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also required when you would like to encrypt the information exchanged between the site and its visitors with an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting
We provide you with dedicated IP addresses with all of our Linux cloud web hosting packages regardless of the data center location and you can buy one or several IPs from your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will show up as part of your account and you'll be able to request, delete or view your IPs with several clicks. You're able to decide how many websites or subdomains will use a certain IP since you can assign one with a few clicks to any hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be your main website, that uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer goods or services online and it can have a dedicated IP combined with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a site uses through the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set a few of your sites to use one and the same dedicated IP given that there's no SSL installed for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you acquire a semi-dedicated server account from us, you have the option to acquire as many dedicated IPs as you'd like depending on the needs you have. It will take a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to buy your new IP plus several more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is very easy and your website will start loading from the new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will allow you to view all the IPs that you are able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. In case you want to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you send your order, so you don't need to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account manually.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting
All the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we provide have 3 dedicated IP addresses as standard and for free. You'll be able to use them for any type of purpose based on the content that you've got on your server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your clients can use to redirect domains to their web hosting accounts, and many more. In addition, you can get more dedicated IPs through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones which come with the server. You'll be able to get the IPs in groups of three and they will be added to your dedicated server right after you submit your order, so that you can use them without any delays.
