All devices on the Internet are identified by a special number called an IP address, for instance If you have a site, the domain that you type in order to open it is for your convenience, however the server where the site files are still has an IP address. Considering that there are far more websites and devices than there are IP addresses, all shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under the very same IP, whereas with a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you may have far better search engine rankings because a dedicated IP often means a faster loading site. What is more, you need such an IP if you would like to obtain an SSL certificate for your website and secure the data that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
In case you host your websites on our reliable cloud platform and you have a shared hosting package, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any moment and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only a couple of clicks. This option is available in all data centers where we offer services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice throughout the registration process, you're able to obtain a dedicated IP address for your sites. You can add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. In case any of the IPs that you acquire will be used for an SSL certificate, you can activate the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard then our system will request & assign the IP before it installs the certificate automatically. Our flexible platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP for a number of websites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel, that is provided with our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it really easy to purchase a dedicated IP and use it for each site that you have in your account no matter if it is under a domain or a subdomain. With just a couple of clicks you'll be able to order the IP and once our system assigns it, you'll be able to set it for one or multiple sites from the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel. In the same place you will also be able to see what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, a list of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what site they are assigned to? In case the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you can take full advantage of our helpful SSL wizard that will make the whole process very simple since it'll request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and after that install the SSL without any action on your side other than placing the order.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All of our VPS servers feature one dedicated IP address by default and in case you pick a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin) throughout the registration process, you'll acquire a second one as well free of cost. You'll be able to employ them as you decide - to access online content, to run a web app, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name that you have and use the latter for any other website that you plan to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you can manage all plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will allow you to order more dedicated IP addresses if you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you will be able to use them straight away.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Because it's possible to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all our packages come with three dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you need to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs which we provide for free. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you've registered with our company or elsewhere then employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you have a website hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. When you need more IP addresses than the three the plans feature, you are able to get extra ones in increments of 3 either throughout the registration process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
