A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the web that is allotted to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have plenty of sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs that aren't shared with others. Even when you use a typical shared account, however, you will be able to buy a dedicated IP address that will be in use just by your websites - one or a few. As this can contribute to the speed of thewebsite, it's more likely that the site will get greater search engine result rankings. Of course, this isn't the only factor, but it can help you have more website visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also required when you want to encrypt the info exchanged between the site and its visitors using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
With a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you can get a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks no matter where your account is - in the United States, the UK or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains part of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're assigned to. When you wish to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the information of your visitors and you acquire it from our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't need to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a message board where users can share opinions about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
With only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to add one or multiple dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated server and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will allow you to see the available IPs and to monitor the ones which are in use with ease. Provided you wish to get a new IP for an SSL certificate, you can use the auto-configuration function, which is available in our SSL order wizard. If you enable this feature, you will not need to do anything after you post your order because our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, then set up the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without any action on your end. In this way, you will be able to protect the details that visitors post on your website even if you don't have any previous experience with this kind of matters.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers that we provide have three dedicated IP addresses by default and free of charge. You will be able to employ them for any kind of purpose depending on the content that you have on the server - a 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 can use to direct domains to their web hosting accounts, and many more. You'll also be able to order more dedicated IPs via the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with the server. You will be able to purchase the IPs in sets of three and they shall be added to your dedicated server soon after you submit your order, so you can use them without delays.
