A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the web which is allotted to a device or a site. Shared hosting servers usually have a large number of websites under a single IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs that aren't shared with anybody else. Even if you use a standard shared account, however, you will be able to purchase a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your websites - one or a few. Considering that this can add up to the speed of awebsite, it's much more likely that the website will get better search engine result positions. Certainly, this isn't the sole factor, but it is likely to help you have more visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also required if you intend to encode the info exchanged between the website and its visitors by using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting
When you use a web hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to buy a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks no matter where your account is - in the US, the UK or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains section 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 are assigned to. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the info of your website visitors and you acquire it through us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't have to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion board where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you will get the opportunity to get as many dedicated IPs as you need depending on your business needs. It takes just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to buy your new IP and several more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very simple and your site will start loading from your new IP address in no time. Hepsia will enable you to view all of the IPs which you're able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. In case you want to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and install the certificate as soon as you upload your order, so you don't have to customize anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting
Since you are able to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all of our packages come with three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you plan to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs that we provide without charge. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you've registered through our company or any place else and then use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you manage a website hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone service provider. If you need more IP addresses than the three our packages come with, you're able to buy additional ones in increments of three either throughout the signup process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
