All devices on the Web are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, for example 123.123.123.123. When you have a website, the domain that you type to be able to access it is for your convenience, yet the server where your website files are still has an IP address. Since there are a lot more websites and devices than there're IPs, all shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under the very same IP, while when you use a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you will be able to get a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you may get better search engine rankings as a dedicated IP often means a faster loading website. Last but not least, you need such an IP in case you plan to acquire an SSL certificate for your website and secure the information that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
If you use some of our shared hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've selected for the account during the sign-up process, thus it's possible to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can modify each domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from our company, you'll be able to use our auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you wish to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes only a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a website hosting account before, you won't experience any difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP address instead of the server's shared one and you are able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also view all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. In case that you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you'll be able to select everything to be set up automatically. With this feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install your certificate in a couple of minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end apart from authorizing your SSL request through email.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
If you get a VPS server from our company, you will have one dedicated IP address as standard and an additional one when you get a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You are able to use the IP addresses for any sort of purpose - a website, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you're able to use to point to your VPS any domain which you would like to host. You can even add more dedicated IPs to your VPS account any time you need them. This can be done via the billing Control Panel that you will acquire to take care of renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it takes no more than a few clicks. Shortly after you submit your order, the extra IP addresses will be accessible, so you'll be able to use them as you see fit.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Because all of our Linux dedicated service offer 3 dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans as standard, we will give you a serious advantage in case you'd like to run any software that requires this type of an IP. We provide them at zero cost and you're able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain that you host, an SSL certificate for any site on your server, a software server (games, VOIP), etcetera. From the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will obtain to manage renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you can also buy more dedicated IP addresses in sets of three whenever you want. They'll be assigned to your server within minutes, so that you can start using them for your sites and web-based apps without delay.
