When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - a unique number that is used to identify any kind of device connected to the Web. The website name which you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Due to the fact that there're a lot more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for multiple sites even in case they belong to several users. While this doesn't affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a particular site, granting it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you plan to protect the payment or login data that your site visitors enter, you will need an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Hosting
With a hosting
account on our cloud platform, you can get a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks regardless of where your account is - in the US, Britain or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains section of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they are allotted to. When you would like to use an SSL certificate to secure the information of your site visitors and you get it from our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't need to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can 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 Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server
account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes just a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a website hosting account previously, you will not experience any difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP address other than the server's shared one and you are able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you can also find all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is accessible or you are already using it. In case that you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you are able to select everything to be set up automatically. With this feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install your certificate within minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end except for approving your SSL request through email.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All the VPS servers
that we provide include a dedicated IP, so you will not share your IP with any other client with another account on the very same machine. In case you select a web hosting Control Panel for the server throughout the signup process, you will get an extra dedicated IP as well and you're able to use it for any content which you host on the VPS - a site, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, and so on. If you require more IP addresses, you're able to order them as a further upgrade through your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server within a matter of minutes. You can control your IPs with ease from your website hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you will receive to control the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
As you'll be able to run almost anything on a dedicated server
, all our plans feature three dedicated IP addresses included by default. If you want to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs that we provide you with free of charge. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you have registered through our company or any place else and then employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you own a hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone service provider. If you need more IP addresses than the three the packages include, you will be able to purchase extra ones in increments of three either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
