All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a special number called an IP address, for example 123.123.123.123. When you have a website, the domain that you enter to be able to open it is to save you time, yet the server where the site files are still has an IP address. Since there are many more websites and devices than there are IP addresses, all of the shared web hosting servers have a number of sites under the very same IP, while when you use a dedicated server you'll be given a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you are able to get a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you'll have far better search engine positions because a dedicated IP usually means a faster loading website. What's more, you need such an IP if you would like to purchase an SSL certificate for your site and shield the information that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
When you use some of our shared website hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP to your account in no time and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have chosen for the account throughout the sign-up process, so you'll be able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can adjust each 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 acquire the SSL through us, you will be able to use our auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you would like to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Considering that you'll be able to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all our plans come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you need to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs that we provide free of charge. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you have registered with our company or any place else then employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you have a web hosting company, for example, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as an independent supplier. When you need more IPs than the three our packages provide you with, you'll be able to buy additional ones in increments of three either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
