A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the Internet which is allotted to a device or a website. Shared hosting servers usually have a lot of sites under a single IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs that are not shared with others. Even when you use a common shared account, however, you will be able to buy a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your sites - one or a few. As this can add up to the speed of yoursite, it is more likely that the website will get greater search engine result positions. Of course, that isn't the sole factor, but it can help you get more website visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also needed when you wish to encrypt the information exchanged between a site and its visitors using an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

If you use any of our web hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP to your account in no time and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've selected for the account during the registration process, therefore it is possible to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from us, you will be able to use the auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you wish to use them.

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 few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a web hosting account before, you won't have any kind of difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP. Every domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP as an alternative to the server's shared one and you're able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you can also view all IPs that your websites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is available or you are already using it. If you want an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you can select everything to be set up automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install the certificate in a matter of minutes, so you shall not need to do anything on your end other than authorizing the SSL request via e-mail.
