A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the Internet which is assigned to a device or a website. Shared web hosting servers usually have a number of sites under a single IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs which aren't shared with others. Even if you use a regular shared account, however, it's possible to get a dedicated IP address that will be in use just by your sites - one or a few. Because this can contribute to the speed of yourwebsite, it is more likely that the website will get better search engine result rankings. Certainly, that isn't the sole factor, but it is likely to help you get more visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also necessary if you'd like to encrypt the information exchanged between a site and its visitors with an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting
Using a web hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to acquire a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks wherever your account is - in the USA, Great Britain or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains area 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 websites they're assigned to. When you want to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the info of your website visitors and you acquire it through us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install 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 discussion forum where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes no more than a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a web hosting account previously, you won't encounter any difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP. Each domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP address instead of the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also see all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you're already using it. If you want an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you can select everything to be set up automatically. Using this particular feature, our system will change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install your certificate in a couple of minutes, so you shall not have to do anything on your end apart from authorizing the SSL order through e-mail.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All of the dedicated web hosting plans that we supply come with 3 dedicated IP addresses as standard and for free. You can employ them for any type of purpose depending on the content that you've got on the server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your clients can use to point domain names to their hosting accounts, and many other things. You'll also be able to get extra dedicated IP addresses from the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with the server. You will be able to buy the IPs in groups of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server shortly after you submit your order, so that you can use them without delays.
