Dedicated IP Address
Discover what a dedicated IP address is actually and exactly why your website will be needing one eventually.
A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the net that's given to a device or a site. Shared web hosting servers usually have a large number of sites under the very same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs that are not shared with others. Even when you use a regular shared account, however, it's possible to buy a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your sites - one or a few. Considering that this can add up to the speed of yourwebsite, it is much more likely that the site will get greater search engine result rankings. Certainly, this is not the only factor, but it is likely to help you find more website visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also needed if you wish to secure the information exchanged between a website and its visitors through an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
If you use some of our cloud hosting
plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've chosen for the account throughout the sign-up process, which means that you'll be able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can adjust 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 acquire the SSL from our company, you're able to use our auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you wish to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server
account, adding a new dedicated IP takes just a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a hosting account previously, you will not have any kind of difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP address. Every domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP as an alternative to the server's shared one and you'll be able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you can also see all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is available or you are already using it. In case that you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you will be able to select everything to be set up automatically. With this 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 minutes, so you won't need to do anything on your end other than authorizing your SSL request via electronic mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All of our VPS servers
feature one dedicated IP address as standard and when you pick a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin) throughout the registration process, you'll acquire an additional one too free of cost. You'll be able to use them as you decide - to access online content, to run a web app, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name which you have and use the latter for any other domain that you intend to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you're able to take care of all the plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain registrations will allow you to order extra dedicated IP addresses when you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them straight away.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
In case you purchase a dedicated server
, you probably want to run a web application or host numerous sites, so we provide three dedicated IPs 100 % free with each and every plan and you will be able to use them as you see fit - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name that you've registered here or from another company. The last mentioned option is very useful if you use the dedicated server to host users' Internet sites considering that it will give you authority and anonymity as a hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will enable you to add extra IP addresses as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes only a few clicks in the Upgrades section, therefore you'll be able to go ahead and use your brand new dedicated IPs a few minutes after you submit your order.
