All devices on the Web are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, for instance If you have a website, the domain that you enter to access it is for your convenience, however the server where your website files are still has an IP address. As there're a lot more sites and devices than there're IP addresses, all shared web hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, whereas using a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you will be able to acquire a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One advantage would be that you will get improved search engine positions since a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading site. Last but not least, you need such an IP when you would like to purchase an SSL certificate for your site and shield the information that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
With a shared website hosting account on our cloud platform, you'll be able to obtain a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks wherever your account is - in the United States, Great Britain or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains section of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're allotted to. In case you want to use an SSL certificate to protect the information of your visitors and you obtain it through our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't have to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a community forum where users can share opinions about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All of the dedicated servers that we supply come with three dedicated IP addresses by default and free of charge. You'll be able to employ them for any type of purpose depending on the content that you have on your server - an online game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your customers can use to redirect domains to their web hosting accounts, and many more. You will also be able to buy additional dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with the plan. You are able to acquire the IPs in sets of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server shortly after you send your order, which means that you can start using them without any delays.
