All devices on the Internet are recognized by a special number called an IP address, for instance When you have a website, the domain that you enter to be able to access it is for your convenience, however the server where your site files are still has an IP. Considering that there're many more websites and devices than there are IPs, all the shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under the very same IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you're able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you may get superior search engine rankings as a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading site. Furthermore, you need such an IP in case you want to get an SSL certificate for your site and protect the data that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting
If you use some of our website hosting packages, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without any difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have selected for the account throughout the signup process, so it is possible to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can modify each and every domain or subdomain individually from the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through our company, you are able to use the auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you wish to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes only a couple of 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 encounter any kind of difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP. Each domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP other than the server's shared one and you can make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you can also see 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 wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you will be able to select everything to be installed automatically. Using this particular feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up your certificate within minutes, so you won't have to do anything on your end other than approving the SSL request via e-mail.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
If you order a dedicated server, you probably plan to run some web app or host a lot of sites, so we supply three dedicated IP addresses for free with every single plan and you can use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain which you have registered here or via another company. The last mentioned option is very helpful in case you use your dedicated server to host users' websites due to the fact that it'll give you authority and anonymity as a website hosting company. The server billing Control Panel will enable you to add more IPs as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, therefore you will be able to go ahead and employ the brand new dedicated IP addresses several minutes after you send your order.
