All devices on the World Wide Web are identified by a specific number called an IP address, for instance When you have a website, the domain name that you type to load it is for your convenience, yet the server where your website files are still has an IP. Since there are far more websites and devices than there're IPs, all of the shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under the very same IP, whereas when you use a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you will be able to get a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you will enjoy better search engine rankings because a dedicated IP generally means a quicker loading site. What is more, you need such an IP in case you intend to acquire an SSL certificate for your site and shield the information that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting
When you use a cloud web hosting account on our cloud platform, you'll be able to get a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks no matter where your account is - in the US, the UK or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains area of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are allotted to. When you want to use an SSL certificate to secure the info of your website visitors and you acquire it from our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion forum where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
As all our dedicated web hosting plans offer 3 dedicated IP addresses included in the plans as standard, we will give you a serious advantage if you wish to run any application that needs such an IP. We provide them at no charge and you're able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain name that you host, an SSL certificate for any site on the server, a software server (games, VOIP), etc. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll get to manage renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you can also get more dedicated IPs in groups of three any time. They'll be assigned to your server within minutes, so that you can start using them for your websites and web-based applications right away.
