Dedicated IP Address
Find out what a dedicated IP address is and why your web site will likely need one eventually.
A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the Internet that is given to a device or a site. Shared web hosting servers usually have a multitude of websites under a single IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs that aren't shared with anyone else. Even when you use a regular shared account, however, you are able to get a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your sites - one or a few. Since this can contribute to the speed of awebsite, it's more likely that the website will get better search engine result positions. Of course, this isn't the only factor, but it can help you get more website visitors and prospective clients. The dedicated IP is also required when you would like to encrypt the info exchanged between the website and its visitors using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
When you use any of our shared website hosting
packages, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have picked for the account during the signup process, therefore it is possible to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can modify each domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL from our company, you are able to use the auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you wish to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account, adding a new dedicated IP takes no more than a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a web hosting account previously, you won't experience any kind of difficulties to acquire and assign a dedicated IP. Each domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP other than the server's shared one and you are able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also view all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is available or you are already using it. If you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you will be able to select everything to be installed automatically. Using this feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up your certificate within minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end other than authorizing the SSL request via e-mail.

If you obtain a virtual private server
from us, you will have a dedicated IP address as standard and another one in case you get a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You will be able to use the IPs for any sort of purpose - a site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you are able to use to point to your VPS any domain name that you want to host. In addition, you can add more dedicated IPs to the VPS account if you need them. This can be done via the billing Control Panel that you'll acquire in order to control renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it will take just a couple of clicks. After you submit your order, the extra IP addresses will be accessible, so you can use them the way you like.
