All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a special number called an IP address, for instance 123.123.123.123. When you have a site, the domain name that you enter in order to load it is to save you time, however the server where your site files are still has an IP. As there are a lot more sites and devices than there're IP addresses, all of the shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, while when you use a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you will be able to acquire a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you will enjoy improved search engine rankings because a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading website. What is more, you need such an IP when you would like to acquire an SSL certificate for your website and secure the info that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Hosting
When you use a hosting account on our cloud platform, you can buy a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks wherever your account is - in the United States, Britain or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains part of the 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. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate so as to protect the information of your visitors and you acquire it from us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't need to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a community forum where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
With only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you can add one or several dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated plan and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will allow you to find the available IPs and to check the ones which are in use in no time. In case you would like to get a new IP for an SSL certificate, you're able to use the auto-configuration function, that is available in our SSL order wizard. When you enable this feature, you will not need to do anything after you send in your order because our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, then install the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without any action on your end. That way, you are able to secure the details that visitors submit on your site even if you do not have any previous experience with such matters.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All of our VPS hosting plans come with one dedicated IP address as standard and in case you obtain a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, DirectAdmin, cPanel) during the signup process, you will get an additional one too without charge. You will be able to use them as you decide - to access web content, to run a web app, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website that 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 control all the plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will enable you to order additional dedicated IP addresses in case you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them right away.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
In case you acquire a dedicated server, you probably want to run some web application or host a number of Internet sites, so we provide 3 dedicated IPs for free with every single package and you will be able to 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 really useful when you use the dedicated server to host users' websites as it'll give you authority and anonymity as a website hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add additional IPs as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, so you will be able to go ahead and employ the brand new dedicated IP addresses a few minutes after you submit your order.
