All devices on the Web are identified by a special number called an IP address, for example 188.8.131.52. In case you have a website, the domain that you enter to load it is for your convenience, however the server where your site files are still has an IP. Due to the fact that there're far more websites and devices than there're IP addresses, all the shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under an identical IP, while when you use a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you'll get improved search engine rankings since a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading site. Last but not least, you need such an IP if you want to get an SSL certificate for your website and protect the info that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting
When you use a shared web hosting
account on our cloud platform, you will be able to get a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks no matter where your account is - in the United States, the UK or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains part of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're allotted to. When you wish to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the info of your visitors and you acquire it through us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a message board where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that is supplied with all of our semi-dedicated server
plans, will make it really easy to acquire a dedicated IP address and use it for each website that you have in your account regardless if it is under a domain or a subdomain. With only a few clicks you will be able to order the IP and as soon as our system assigns it, you will be able to set it for one or more sites through the Hosted Domains part of the Control Panel. In the same place you can also find what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, a list of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what site they're assigned to? In case the IP you will need is for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to take advantage of our helpful SSL wizard which will make the whole process super easy as it will request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and then set up the SSL without the need of any action on your side apart from placing your order.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting
If you purchase a virtual private server
from our company, you'll have one dedicated IP address automatically and a second one if you obtain a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You'll 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 which you want to host. Additionally, 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 obtain in order to manage renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it takes only a few clicks. After you send your order, the extra IP addresses will be available, so you will be able to use them the way you like.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting
Considering that it's possible to run almost anything on a dedicated server
, all of our packages feature three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you wish to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you will be able to use the IPs which we supply free of charge. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you have registered through us or somewhere else then use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you have a web hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone provider. When you need more IP addresses than the three the plans come with, you will be able to purchase extra ones in increments of 3 either during the signup process or through your billing Control Panel at any time.
