All devices on the Internet are identified by a special number called an IP address, for example When you have a site, the domain that you type to access it is for your convenience, but the server where your website files are still has an IP. As there're many more websites and devices than there're IPs, all of the shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under the very same IP, while with a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you can obtain a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you may get far better search engine positions since a dedicated IP generally means a quicker loading website. In addition, you need such an IP when you plan to purchase an SSL certificate for your website and secure the data that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting
With a website hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to buy a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks regardless of where your account is - in the USA, the United Kingdom or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains area of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're assigned to. When you would like to use an SSL certificate to secure the info of your visitors and you obtain it from our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion board where users can share opinions about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you buy a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you'll get the option to get as many dedicated IPs as you like depending on the needs you have. It will take just a few clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to obtain a new IP plus several more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is really easy and your site will start opening from your new IP address in no time. Hepsia will enable you to see all of the IP addresses that you are able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate on any of your sites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and set up the certificate as soon as you submit your order, so you will not have to customize anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS
All Linux VPS that we provide come with a dedicated IP address, so you will not share the IP with another client with an account on the very same machine. If you choose a website hosting Control Panel for the server during the registration process, you'll receive a second dedicated IP too and you are able to use it for any content which you host on your VPS - an Internet site, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, and the like. In case you would like to have more IP addresses, you're able to order them as a further upgrade through your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server very quickly. You'll be able to manage your IPs with ease via your website hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel which you will receive to manage the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
All the dedicated hosting that we supply include three dedicated IP addresses by default and for free. You are able to employ them for any purpose based 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 site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your customers may use to point domains to their hosting accounts, etc. In addition, you can order more dedicated IP addresses via the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with the plan. You can obtain the IPs in groups of three and they will be added to your dedicated server soon after you send your order, which means that you can use them without any delays.
