Dedicated IP Address
Find what a dedicated IP address really is and exactly why your website will need one at some time.
A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the Internet that is given to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have a number of sites under the very same IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs which are not shared with anybody else. Even if you use a typical shared account, however, it's possible to get a dedicated IP address that will be in use just by your websites - one or a few. Because this can contribute to the speed of thewebsite, it is more likely that the site will get better search engine result positions. Of course, this is not the only factor, but it can help you have more website visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also needed when you would like to encode the info exchanged between a website and its visitors by using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
With a shared hosting
account on our cloud platform, you will be able to buy a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the US, Great Britain or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains section of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are allotted to. When you want to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the info of your website visitors and you get it from our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion forum where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you buy a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, you'll have the option to get as many dedicated IP addresses as you need depending on the needs you have. It takes just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to buy a new IP and a few more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very easy and your website will start opening from your new IP address in a few minutes. Hepsia will enable you to see all IP addresses which you can use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. If you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, which can assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you submit your order, so you do not have to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account manually.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
In case you buy a VPS server
from our company, you will have a dedicated IP address by default and an additional one if you obtain a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IP addresses for any kind of purpose - a website, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you'll be able to use to point to your VPS any website which you would like to host. Also, you can add more dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account any time you need them. You can do this via the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain so as to take care of renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations and it will take just a few clicks. Soon after you submit your order, the additional IP addresses will be accessible, so you'll be able to use them the way you like.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
If you acquire a dedicated server
, you probably would like to run some web app or host a lot of websites, so we provide three dedicated IPs absolutely free with each plan and you're able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain which you've registered here or via another company. The last option is really useful if you use the dedicated server to host clients' websites due to the fact that it will give you trustworthiness and anonymity as a hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will enable you to add additional IP addresses as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, therefore you are able to go ahead and take advantage of the new dedicated IPs a couple of minutes after you send your order.
