A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the world wide web that is given to a device or a site. Shared web hosting servers usually have a number of sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs which aren't shared with anyone else. Even when you use a standard shared account, however, you can acquire a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your websites - one or a few. Because this can add up to the speed of yoursite, it is more likely that the site will get improved search engine result rankings. Certainly, this is not the only factor, but it can help you find more site visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also needed when you intend to encrypt the information exchanged between the site and its visitors with an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Hosting

When you use some of our hosting packages, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account in no time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have picked for your account throughout the signup process, so you can use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can edit each and every domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from us, you will be able to use the auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you want to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All of the dedicated web hosting plans that we supply have three dedicated IP addresses by default and free of charge. You can use them for any purpose according to the content that you have on your server - a video game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your customers may use to redirect domain names to their hosting accounts, and many other things. You'll also be able to buy additional dedicated IPs from the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with your server. You'll be able to buy the IPs in groups of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server soon after you submit your order, which means that you can start using them without any delays.
