A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the web which is given to a device or a website. Shared website hosting servers usually have a multitude of sites under a single IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs which aren't shared with anyone else. Even if you use a typical shared account, however, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your sites - one or a few. Considering that this can contribute to the speed of yoursite, it is more likely that the site will get better search engine result rankings. Certainly, this is not the only factor, but it is likely to help you have more visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also necessary when you intend to secure the info exchanged between a site and its visitors through an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

If you host your sites on our up-to-date cloud platform and you have a shared website hosting plan, you are able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This option is available in all of the data centers where we offer services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice throughout the registration process, you are able to get a dedicated IP for your sites. You will be able to add / remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. In case any of the IPs that you buy will be used for an SSL certificate, you can enable the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and our system will request and assign the IP before it sets up your certificate automatically. Our flexible platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP for a number of websites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes no more than a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a website hosting account before, you will not experience any difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP address. Each domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP address as an alternative to the server's shared one and you're able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also find all IPs that your websites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is available or you are already using it. If you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you're able to select everything to be set up automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install the certificate within minutes, so you won't have to do anything on your end except for approving the SSL order through e-mail.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

Our VPS plans come with one dedicated IP by default and when you pick a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, DirectAdmin, cPanel) during the signup process, you'll get an extra one as well free of cost. You can employ them the way you like - to access site content, to run a web application, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name which you have and use the latter for any other website that you wish to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you can take care of all of the plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will enable you to order additional dedicated IPs in case you need them for any purpose. Just a couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them immediately.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Considering that you are able to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our plans come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you wish to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs which we provide you with for free. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you've registered with us or any place else and then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you manage a web hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone service provider. When you need more IP addresses than the three the plans come with, you will be able to get extra ones in increments of three either during the registration process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
