A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the world wide web that's given to a device or a website. Shared website hosting servers usually have numerous sites under a single IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs that aren't shared with anyone else. Even when you use a common shared account, however, you're able to buy a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your websites - one or a few. Because this can contribute to the speed of asite, it is more likely that the site will get superior search engine result rankings. Certainly, this isn't the only factor, but it is likely to help you get more site visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also needed if you intend to encode the information exchanged between the site and its visitors through an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
When you use any of our shared hosting packages, you will 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 throughout the registration process, so it's possible to take advantage of 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 since you can modify each and every domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through us, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you want to use them.

When you acquire a semi-dedicated server account through us, you'll have the option to acquire as many dedicated IP addresses as you would like depending on your preferences. It takes just a few clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to order a new IP and several more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is very easy and your website will start loading from the new IP address in a few minutes. Hepsia will allow you to see all the IP addresses which you're able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. Provided you would like to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which can assign a new IP and set up the certificate once you send your order, so you don't have to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All the dedicated web hosting plans that we offer feature 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and absolutely free. You're able to use them for any kind of purpose depending on the content that you've got on the server - a video game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your clients may use to redirect domain names to their hosting accounts, and many other things. In addition, you can purchase additional dedicated IPs via the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with your server. You're able to get the IPs in sets of three and they shall be added to your dedicated server right after you send your order, so you can use them with no delays.
