If you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to identify any device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there are many more sites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for many different sites even in case they belong to separate users. Even though this does not affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a website, providing it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you would like to protect the payment or login information that your site visitors submit, you'll need an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
When you use a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to purchase a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks wherever your account is - in the United States, Great Britain or Australia. This is done through 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 sites they're assigned to. If you want to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the information of your visitors and you get it through us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion forum where users can share opinions about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes just a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a website hosting account before, you won't experience any kind of difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP as an alternative to the server's shared one and you'll be able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also see all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is free or you're already using it. If you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you're able to select everything to be set up automatically. With this particular feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up your certificate within minutes, so you shall not need to do anything on your end except for authorizing your SSL request through electronic mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All of our VPS servers include one dedicated IP as standard and if you get a web hosting Control Panel (cPanel, Hepsia, DirectAdmin) during the signup process, you'll get a second one as well at no extra cost. You will be able to employ them as you decide - to access site content, to manage a web app, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name that you have and use the latter for any other website that you want to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you're able to control all plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain registrations will enable you to order more dedicated IP addresses if you need them for any purpose. A few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them without delay.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
As you can run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our packages feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you would like to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs which we supply free of charge. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you have registered through us or somewhere else then employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you own a hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent provider. If you need more IP addresses than the three our packages feature, you're able to purchase additional ones in increments of 3 either throughout the registration process or through your billing Control Panel at any time.
