A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the net that is assigned to a device or a site. Shared website hosting servers usually have a multitude of sites under the very same IP, while dedicated ones have their own IPs that aren't shared with others. Even if you use a standard shared account, however, you are able to get a dedicated IP address that will be in use only by your websites - one or a few. Because this can contribute to the speed of yoursite, it's more likely that the website will get greater search engine result rankings. Of course, this is not the only factor, but it can help you have more site visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also needed if you would like to encode the information exchanged between a website and its visitors using an SSL certificate.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP 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 previously, you will not encounter any kind of difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP in place of the server's shared one and you are able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you can also view all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is available or you are already using it. If you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you'll be able to select everything to be set up automatically. Using this feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up the certificate within minutes, so you will not need to do anything on your end other than approving the SSL request through electronic mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
If you acquire a VPS server from our company, you will have one dedicated IP address automatically and an extra one when you obtain a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin).

In addition, you can add extra dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account if you need them. You can do this through the billing Control Panel that you'll get so as to control renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it takes just a couple of clicks.

If you acquire a dedicated server, you probably plan to run a web app or host a number of sites, so we supply three dedicated IPs without charge with each and every package and you can use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name that you've registered here or from another company. The last option is very helpful when you use your dedicated server to host customers' sites because it'll give you credibility and anonymity as a web hosting company. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add extra IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, so you're able to go ahead and use the brand new dedicated IPs several minutes after you submit your order.
