All devices on the Internet are recognized by a special number called an IP address, such as 123.123.123.123. In case you have a site, the domain that you type to open it is to save you time, but the server where your website files are still has an IP address. As there're far more websites and devices than there are IP addresses, all shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, while using a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you're able to obtain a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you may have better search engine positions because a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading site. In addition, you need such an IP if you would like to acquire an SSL certificate for your site and shield the information that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Hosting
With a hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to acquire a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks wherever your account is - in the United States, Great Britain or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains part of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are allotted to. When you wish to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the information of your site visitors and you get it from our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't have to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion board where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you obtain a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you'll have the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IP addresses as you'd like depending on the needs you have. It takes just a few clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to get a new IP plus several more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is really easy and your website will start loading from the new IP address in a few minutes. Hepsia will enable you to see all IP addresses which you will be able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. In case you'd like to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and install the certificate once you upload your order, so you don't need to customize anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
Due to the fact that it is possible to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our packages feature three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you plan to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you will be able to use the IPs that we supply absolutely free. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you've registered through our company or anywhere else and use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you manage a website hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. When you need more IPs than the three the packages provide you with, you will be able to buy extra ones in increments of three either during the registration process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
