A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the Internet that's allotted to a device or a site. Shared web hosting servers usually have a multitude of sites under the same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs which are not shared with others. Even when you use a standard shared account, however, it is possible to get a dedicated IP address that will be used just by your sites - one or a few. Since this can contribute to the speed of thesite, it is much more likely that the website will get superior search engine result rankings. Certainly, that isn't the only factor, but it can help you find more visitors and prospective clients. The dedicated IP is also necessary when you'd like to secure the information exchanged between the website and its visitors through an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Hosting
We provide dedicated IP addresses with all our hosting whatever the data center location and you're able to purchase one or several IPs from your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will appear in your account and you are able to request, delete or view your IPs with a few clicks. You will be able to decide how many domains or subdomains will use a given IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to any hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be your main website, which uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer services or goods online and it could have a dedicated IP together with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP that a site uses from the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set a few of your websites to use the same dedicated IP provided that there's no SSL activated for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
As you can run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all of our plans feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you wish to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs that we provide you with absolutely free. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you have registered through us or any place else and then employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you manage a web hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone provider. If you need more IPs than the three the plans come with, you can get extra ones in increments of three either throughout the signup process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
