All devices on the Internet are identified by a specific number called an IP address, for example 123.123.123.123. If you have a website, the domain name that you type to be able to open it is to save you time, but the server where your site files are still has an IP address. As there're many more websites and devices than there're IP addresses, all of the shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under an identical IP, whereas with a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites and host them on a shared server. One benefit would be that you'll have improved search engine positions as a dedicated IP often means a quicker loading site. Also, you need such an IP if you plan to buy an SSL certificate for your site and protect the information that your visitors submit on it.

Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting

When you use any of our website hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account with ease and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have selected for the account throughout the signup process, therefore you're able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can modify each and every domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from our company, you'll be able to use our auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you wish to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting

If you obtain a virtual private server from us, you will have one dedicated IP address as standard and an additional one in case you get a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IP addresses for any sort of purpose - a site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you're able to use to point to your VPS any website which you plan to host. You can even add extra dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account every time you need them. You can do this from the billing Control Panel that you will receive so as to manage renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it will take just a couple of clicks. Soon after you post your order, the added IP addresses will be available, so you are able to use them the way you like.
