All devices on the Web are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, for example When you have a site, the domain name that you enter to open it is to save you time, however the server where the site files are still has an IP address. Because there're a lot more sites and devices than there are IPs, all of the shared web hosting servers have a number of websites under the very same IP, while when you use a dedicated server you'll get a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you can obtain a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you will have superior search engine rankings because a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading website. In addition, you need such an IP in case you intend to obtain an SSL certificate for your site and protect the information that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
If you use some of our cloud hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account with ease and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've picked for the account throughout the registration process, therefore you can use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each domain or subdomain individually from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from us, you're able to use our auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you want to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
In case you order a dedicated server, you probably would like to run some web app or host a lot of sites, so we supply three dedicated IP addresses 100 % free with every single plan and you are able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain which you've registered here or from another company. The last mentioned option is very helpful in case you use the dedicated server to host clients' websites because it will give you credibility and anonymity as a web hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add more IP addresses as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes only a few clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you're able to go ahead and use the brand new dedicated IP addresses just a couple of minutes after you submit your order.
