A dedicated IP address is a unique numeric identifier on the Internet that is given to a device or a website. Shared hosting servers usually have a multitude of sites under the very same IP, while dedicated ones use their own IPs which are not shared with others. Even when you use a typical shared account, however, it is possible to purchase a dedicated IP address that will be used just by your sites - one or a few. Since this can add up to the speed of thewebsite, it's more likely that the website will get better search engine result rankings. Certainly, that isn't the only factor, but it can help you get more site visitors and potential clients. The dedicated IP is also needed when you'd like to encode the information exchanged between the site and its visitors using an SSL certificate.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
We provide dedicated IPs with all of our Linux shared website hosting packages regardless of the data center location and you can acquire one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will appear as part of your account and you'll be able to request, delete or view your IPs with just a few clicks. You are able to decide what number of domains or subdomains will use a given IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to every hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be the main site, which uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer services or goods on the net and it might have a dedicated IP together with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP that a website uses via the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set a couple of of your sites to use one and the same dedicated IP as long as there is no SSL installed for it.

With only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to add one or a variety of dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated hosting package and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will help you see the available IP addresses and to check the ones which are in use with ease. If you wish to obtain a new IP for an SSL certificate, you're able to use the auto-configuration function, that's available in our SSL order wizard. When you activate this feature, you will not need to do anything after you post your order as our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, then install the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without any action on your end. This way, you'll be able to shield the details that visitors post on your website even when you don't have any previous experience with this type of matters.
