A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the web which is allotted to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have plenty of websites under a single IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs that are not shared with anyone else. Even when you use a typical shared account, however, it is possible to obtain a dedicated IP address that will be in use just by your sites - one or a few. Since this can contribute to the speed of asite, it's much more likely that the website will get superior search engine result positions. Of course, this is not the only factor, but it can help you find more website visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also required if you wish to encrypt the info exchanged between a website and its visitors through an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you host your sites on our up-to-date cloud platform and you have a cloud website hosting plan, you can add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This option is accessible in all of the data center facilities where we supply services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice during the registration process, you'll be able to acquire a dedicated IP for your sites. You will be able to add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any moment. If any of the IPs that you obtain will be used for an SSL certificate, you could activate the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard then our system will request & assign the IP before it sets up the certificate automatically. Our adaptable platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP address for a number of sites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes just a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a website hosting account before, you won't experience any difficulties to acquire and assign a dedicated IP. Each domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP in place of the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you will also find all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is available or you're already using it. If 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 set up automatically. With this particular feature, our system will change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up the certificate within minutes, so you won't need to do anything on your end other than authorizing the SSL request via electronic mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
Our Linux VPS servers provide you with one dedicated IP as standard and if you pick a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin) during the signup process, you will acquire an additional one as well completely free. You are able to use them as you see fit - to access website content, to manage a web app, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website which you have and use the latter for any other domain that you need to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you're able to manage all of the plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will enable you to order additional dedicated IP addresses if you need them for any purpose. Just a few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them straight away.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Since you're able to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our packages feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you plan to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you're able to use the IPs that we supply for free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you have registered through us or elsewhere and then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you own a hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. When you need more IP addresses than the three our plans include, you are able to buy extra ones in increments of 3 either throughout the registration process or through your billing Control Panel at any time.
