All devices on the Internet are identified by a specific number called an IP address, for example When you have a website, the domain name that you enter to load it is to save you time, but the server where your site files are still has an IP address. Due to the fact that there're far more websites and devices than there are IP addresses, all shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you'll get 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 superior search engine positions as a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading site. Last but not least, you need such an IP in case you want to acquire an SSL certificate for your site and secure the info that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting
We provide you with dedicated IP addresses with all our Linux web hosting packages whatever the data center location and you're able to obtain one or several IPs from your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will appear as part of your account and you can request, view or delete your IPs with a couple of clicks. You are able to choose what number of sites or subdomains will use a given IP since you can assign one with a few clicks to every hostname. To give an example, can be your main site, which uses a server's shared IP, and can be your subdomain where you offer services or goods online and it could have a dedicated IP in addition to an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which a site uses via the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set some of your sites to use a single dedicated IP provided that there is no SSL activated for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes no more than a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a website hosting account previously, you won't encounter any difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP address rather than the server's shared one and you're able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also find all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is available or you are already using it. In case that you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you're able to select everything to be set up automatically. With this feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install the certificate in a matter of minutes, so you will not need to do anything on your end apart from authorizing the SSL request through email.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
As all of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages offer three dedicated IP addresses included in the plans by default, we will give you a head start if you'd like to run any software which needs this type of an IP. We supply them for free and you're able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain name that you host, an SSL certificate for any website on your server, a software server (games, VOIP), etcetera. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain to organize renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you'll also be able to obtain more dedicated IP addresses in groups of three at any time. They'll be assigned to your server in no time, so that you can start using them for your websites and web-based applications without delay.
