A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the net that's assigned to a device or a website. Shared hosting servers usually have a number of sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs which aren't shared with anybody else. Even when you use a typical shared account, however, you will be able to get a dedicated IP address that will be used just by your sites - one or a few. Because this can contribute to the speed of thesite, it is much more likely that the site will get greater search engine result rankings. Of course, that isn't the sole factor, but it can help you get more visitors and prospective clients. The dedicated IP is also necessary if you intend to secure the info exchanged between a site and its visitors through an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
Using a shared website hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks no matter where your account is - in the US, the UK or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains section of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are assigned to. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the information of your visitors and you obtain it from us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion forum where users can share opinions about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes no more than a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a website hosting account previously, you will not have any difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP address as an alternative to the server's shared one and you're able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you will also see all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. In case that you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you're able to select everything to be installed automatically. Using this particular feature, our system will change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install your certificate within minutes, so you won't have to do anything on your end other than approving the SSL request through electronic mail.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
Because all our Linux dedicated hosting feature three dedicated IP addresses included in the plans as standard, we will give you a serious advantage in case you would like to run any app which requires this type of an IP. We provide them free of charge and you can use them for as long as you use the server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain name which you host, an SSL certificate for any website on the server, a software server (games, VOIP), and so on. From the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll receive to manage renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you can also obtain more dedicated IPs in sets of three whenever you need. They'll be assigned to your server in no time, so that you can start using them for your sites and web-based apps without delay.
