A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the Internet which is assigned to a device or a website. Shared website hosting servers usually have a large number of sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs that are not shared with anybody else. Even when you use a regular shared account, however, you can purchase a dedicated IP address that will be used only by your sites - one or a few. As this can add up to the speed of asite, it is more likely that the site will get better search engine result positions. Of course, that isn't the only factor, but it is likely to help you get more visitors and potential customers. The dedicated IP is also needed when you wish to encode the info exchanged between the website and its visitors with an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

If you use some of our cloud hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP to your account with ease and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've chosen for the account throughout the signup process, therefore you'll be able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for example, whereas 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 section of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL from our company, you'll be able to use our auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you wish to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

With just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to add one or multiple dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated hosting plan and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will allow you to find the available IPs and to keep track of the ones which are in use in no time. Provided you wish to acquire a new IP for an SSL certificate, you're able to use the auto-configuration function, that is available in our SSL order wizard. When you activate this option, you won't need to do anything after you send in your order because our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, and then set up the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. This way, you are able to secure the info that visitors submit on your site even if you do not have any previous experience with this type of matters.
