If you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - a special number that's used to detect a device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there are a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for many different sites even in case they are owned by separate users. While this doesn't affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a site, providing it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you wish to protect the payment or login data that your site visitors enter, you need an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting
If you use any of our cloud web hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP to your account in no time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've chosen for the account during the sign-up process, so you will be able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can edit each domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from our company, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you want to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel, that is supplied with our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it really easy to get a dedicated IP address and use it for each website that you have in your account no matter if it's under a domain or a subdomain. With only a couple of clicks you'll be able to order the IP and as soon as our system assigns it, you will be able to set it for one or several sites via the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel. In the same location you can also see what IP is used by each and every domain or subdomain, a long list of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what website they are assigned to? Provided the IP you will need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take advantage of our useful SSL wizard which will make the entire process very simple as it'll request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and after that set up the SSL without the need of any action on your side apart from placing your order.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
In case you get a VPS server from our company, you will get a dedicated IP address automatically and an additional one in case you acquire a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You're able to use the IPs for any purpose - a site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you're able to use to point to your VPS any domain that you wish to host. In addition, you can add extra dedicated IPs to your VPS account every time you need them. This can be done via the billing Control Panel that you will receive to take care of renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations and it will take just a few clicks. Soon after you upload your order, the additional IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you're able to use them as you see fit.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Due to the fact that it's possible to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our packages feature three dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you need to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you're able to use the IPs which we supply absolutely free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you've registered with our company or somewhere else and then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you run a hosting company, for example, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as an independent provider. If you need more IP addresses than the three the plans include, you are able to purchase additional ones in increments of three either during the registration process or through your billing Control Panel at any time.
