All devices on the Web are identified by a special number called an IP address, such as 123.123.123.123. If you have a site, the domain that you enter in order to load it is to save you time, however the server where the website files are still has an IP address. Considering that there're many more websites and devices than there're IPs, all the shared web hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, while when you use a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you are able to acquire a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you may have better search engine rankings because a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading website. What's more, you need such an IP if you would like to acquire an SSL certificate for your website and protect the info that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting

We offer dedicated IP addresses with all of our Linux cloud web hosting whatever the data center location and you are able to get one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will show up as part of your account and you can request, delete or view your IPs with just a few clicks. You will be able to choose how many sites or subdomains will use a certain IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to every hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be the main site, which uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer services or goods online and it might have a dedicated IP combined with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP that a domain 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 a couple of of your sites to use one and the same dedicated IP as long as there's no SSL activated for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes only a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a web hosting account before, you won't encounter any difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP rather than the server's shared one and you are able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you will also view all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is free or you're already using it. In case that you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you'll be able to select everything to be installed automatically. When you use this feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install your certificate within a matter of minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end other than approving your SSL request via e-mail.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting

Since our Linux dedicated web hosting come with three dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans by default, we will give you a head start if you would like to run any software which needs such an IP. We provide them cost-free and you can use them for as long as you use the server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain name which you host, an SSL certificate for any site on the server, a software server (online games, VOIP), etc. From the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll get to organize renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you can also obtain more dedicated IP addresses in groups of three any time. They'll be assigned to your server in a few minutes, so you can start using them for your sites and web-based apps without delay.
