All devices on the Internet are recognized by a unique number called an IP address, for example When you have a site, the domain name that you type to access it is to save you time, however the server where the website files are still has an IP. As there're many more sites and devices than there're IP addresses, all shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, whereas using a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you will be able to get a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you may have superior search engine rankings as a dedicated IP usually means a quicker loading website. Also, you need such an IP in case you intend to acquire an SSL certificate for your site and secure the information that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
If you use any of our shared website hosting packages, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account with ease and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have selected for your account during the registration process, which means that you can use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can modify each and every domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through us, you can use our auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you would like to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes only a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a web hosting account previously, you won't experience any difficulties to acquire and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP other than the server's shared one and you're able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you can also find all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is free or you're already using it. In case that you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you can select everything to be set up automatically. With 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 a matter of minutes, so you won't have to do anything on your end except for authorizing your SSL order through e-mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
We give a free of charge dedicated IP address with each VPS plans that we supply and if you select a hosting Control Panel on your VPS order page, you will acquire another dedicated IP without spending a dime. Your addresses can be used for virtually any purpose - a site in case you need to set up an SSL certificate or a server IP when you need to manage some application like VOIP software, for example. You can also use the IPs to register child name servers for one or multiple domain names that you have and then you can set them as NS records for any other domain that you'd like to redirect to your Virtual Server. Every time you need extra dedicated IPs, it will take you just a couple of clicks in your billing Control Panel to get them and they will be allotted to your server in no time.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Due to the fact that you're able to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all our plans come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you would like to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs which we provide you with without charge. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you have registered through us or elsewhere then use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you run a hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone provider. When you need more IPs than the three our plans feature, you are able to purchase extra ones in increments of 3 either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
