A dedicated IP address is an exclusive numeric identifier on the Internet that is given to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have a number of websites under the same IP, while dedicated ones feature their own IPs which aren't shared with anybody else. Even when you use a common shared account, however, you will be able to get a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your websites - one or a few. Because this can add up to the speed of yourwebsite, it is more likely that the site will get superior search engine result rankings. Of course, this is not the only factor, but it is likely to help you get more visitors and prospective customers. The dedicated IP is also needed when you would like to secure the info exchanged between a website and its visitors using an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

We provide dedicated IPs with all of our Linux shared hosting irrespective of the data center location and you can acquire one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will show up in your account and you'll be able to request, delete or view your IPs with a couple of clicks. You are able to select what number of domains or subdomains will use a given IP as you can assign one with a few clicks to any hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be your main site, which uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer services or goods online and it could have a dedicated IP address combined with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP that a website uses from the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set a few of your sites to use the same dedicated IP provided that there is no SSL set up for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting

All the Linux dedicated web hosting that we supply come with three dedicated IP addresses by default and cost-free. You will be able to employ them for any type of purpose according to the content that you have on the server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your customers can use to direct domain names to their website hosting accounts, and many more. You can also obtain more dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with your server. You can acquire the IPs in sets of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server right after you send your order, so you can start using them without delays.
