All devices on the World Wide Web are recognized by a unique number called an IP address, for example In case you have a site, the domain name that you enter in order to access it is to save you time, however the server where the website files are still has an IP address. Due to the fact that there are far more websites and devices than there are IP addresses, all shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under the very same IP, whereas using a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you'll be able to get a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you will get better search engine rankings because a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading website. What is more, you need such an IP if you want to acquire an SSL certificate for your site and protect the data that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
If you use any of our shared website hosting packages, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without 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 your account during the registration process, so you can use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from us, you can use our auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you would like to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
With just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you can add one or multiple dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated hosting plan and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will help you find the available IPs and to monitor those that are in use in no time. In case you wish to acquire a new IP for an SSL certificate, you're able to use the auto-configuration function, that's available in our SSL order wizard. When you enable this feature, you won't have to do anything after you submit your order since our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, and then install the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without any action on your end. This way, you're able to shield the data that visitors submit on your website even when you don't have any previous experience with this type of matters.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
In case you acquire a VPS server from us, you will be given a dedicated IP address automatically and another one when you acquire a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You'll be able to use the IP addresses for any sort of purpose - a website, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you'll be able to use to point to your VPS any domain that you plan to host. You can even add more dedicated IPs to your VPS account when you need them. You can do this through the billing Control Panel that you will receive so as to manage renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it will take just a few clicks. After you post your order, the additional IP addresses will be available, so you can use them as you see fit.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All the dedicated web hosting plans that we supply feature three dedicated IP addresses by default and free of charge. You're able to use them for any purpose depending on the content that you've got on your server - a video game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients can use to direct domains to their website hosting accounts, and much more. What's more, you can obtain extra dedicated IPs via the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with your plan. You are able to buy the IPs in groups of three and they will be added to your dedicated server shortly after you send your order, so you can use them with no delays.
