All devices on the Web are identified by a unique number called an IP address, such as In case you have a site, the domain that you type to open it is for your convenience, yet the server where the site files are still has an IP. As there are many more sites and devices than there are IPs, all shared website hosting servers have a number of sites under the same IP, whereas using a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you are able to acquire a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you will enjoy better search engine rankings because a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading site. Last but not least, you need such an IP in case you intend to obtain an SSL certificate for your site and secure the info that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

When you use some of our web hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have chosen for your account during the sign-up process, so you can take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each and every domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from our company, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Due to the fact that you're able to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all our packages feature three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you want to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs which we supply absolutely free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you've registered with our company or any place else then use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you manage a web hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. If you need more IP addresses than the three the packages provide you with, you are able to get additional ones in increments of 3 either throughout the signup process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
