All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a special number called an IP address, for example 123.123.123.123. If you have a site, the domain that you enter to be able to access it is for your convenience, however the server where the site files are still has an IP address. As there're far more websites and devices than there are IPs, all of the shared hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you'll be able to get a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you will have superior search engine positions since a dedicated IP often means a faster loading website. Also, you need such an IP if you plan to get an SSL certificate for your site and shield the information that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting
If you host your websites on our state-of-the-art cloud platform and you have a web hosting plan, you can 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 accessible in all of the data centers where we offer services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice during the registration process, you're able to get a dedicated IP for your sites. You'll be able to 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 enable the automatic configuration attribute in our SSL order wizard and our system will request and assign the IP before it sets up the certificate automatically. Our versatile platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP address for a number of websites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
With only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to add one or multiple dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated server and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will help you see the available IPs and to keep track of those which are in use with ease. In case you would like to acquire a new IP for an SSL certificate, you can use the auto-configuration function, that is available in our SSL order wizard. When you activate this option, you will not need to do anything after you send in your order because our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, then set up the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. This way, you will be able to protect the data that visitors post on your site even if you do not have any previous experience with this type of matters.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
If you acquire a VPS server from us, you will be given a dedicated IP address by default and an extra one in case you get a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You'll be able to use the IPs for any purpose - a site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you're able to use to point to your VPS any website which you want to host. Additionally, you can add more dedicated IPs to the VPS account any time you need them. This can be done via the billing Control Panel that you will get in order to take care of renewals, upgrade purchases and domain name registrations and it will take no more than a few clicks. Shortly after you submit your order, the extra IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you'll be able to use them as you see fit.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Due to the fact that you are able to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all of our plans 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 can use the IPs that we provide you with for free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you have registered through our company or elsewhere and then use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you manage a hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone provider. In case you need more IP addresses than the three our packages provide you with, you are able to purchase extra ones in increments of 3 either during the signup process or through your billing Control Panel at any time.
