A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the net that's assigned to a device or a website. Shared hosting servers usually have a large number of websites under a single IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs that are not shared with anyone else. Even if you use a typical shared account, however, you can purchase a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your sites - one or a few. Considering that this can add up to the speed of thesite, it's more likely that the site will get superior search engine result positions. Certainly, this isn't the only factor, but it can help you find more site visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also required when you want to secure the information exchanged between the website and its visitors with an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

When you use a shared web hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to buy a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks no matter where your account is - in the USA, Britain or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains section of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're assigned to. When you would like to use an SSL certificate to secure the info of your site visitors and you acquire it through our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't have to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on 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 Dedicated Servers

As all of our dedicated web hosting plans feature 3 dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans by default, we will give you a serious advantage in case you'd like to run any app which needs such an IP. We provide them for free and you can use them for as long as you use the server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain 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 will receive to manage renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you'll also be able to buy more dedicated IPs in groups of three whenever you want. They will be assigned to your server in minutes, so you can start using them for your sites and web-based applications right away.
