All devices on the Web are identified by a special number called an IP address, for instance 123.123.123.123. In case you have a site, the domain name that you type to open it is for your convenience, but the server where the site files are still has an IP address. Since there're a lot more sites and devices than there're IPs, all shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, whereas with a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you're able to obtain a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you'll enjoy far better search engine rankings as a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading site. In addition, you need such an IP in case you plan to buy an SSL certificate for your website and secure the info that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting
Using a website hosting account on our cloud platform, you can acquire a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks regardless of where your account is - in the United States, the United Kingdom or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains section 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. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate to protect the info of your site visitors and you obtain it through us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a community forum where users can share opinions about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you purchase a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you'll have the option to acquire as many dedicated IPs as you would like depending on your needs. It takes just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to obtain a new IP and several more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is very simple and your website will start opening from the new IP address in minutes. Hepsia will enable you to see all IPs which you can use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. Provided you'd like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you upload your order, so you don't need to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS
All Linux VPS packages that we offer include a dedicated IP address, so you will not share the IP with another customer with some other account on the same physical machine. If you choose a website hosting Control Panel for the server during the signup process, you will receive an additional dedicated IP as well and you'll be able to use it for any content that you host on the VPS - an Internet site, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etc. If you require more IPs, you are able to order them as an additional upgrade through your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server within a matter of minutes. You will be able to control your IPs with ease from your web hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you'll obtain to command the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
Due to the fact that you can run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all our plans come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included by default. If you need to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you can use the IPs which we supply without charge. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you have registered with us or somewhere else and employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you have a hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as an independent supplier. If you need more IP addresses than the three the packages include, you can purchase extra ones in increments of 3 either during the registration process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
