When you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that is used to distinguish any device connected to the Web. The website name that you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there are far more sites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the same IP for many different sites even if they are owned by several users. While this does not affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a site, granting it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you wish to secure the payment or login details that your site visitors type in, you need an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
With a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform, you'll be able to obtain a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks regardless of where your account is - in the US, Britain or Australia. This can be 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 websites they are allotted to. In case you wish to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the info of your visitors and you acquire it through us, 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. Meanwhile, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a community forum where users can share opinions about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes no more than a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a web hosting account before, you will not experience any kind of difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP address instead of the server's shared one and you are able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you will also see all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is available or you're already using it. If you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you'll be able to select everything to be installed automatically. Using this particular feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install the certificate in a couple of minutes, so you won't have to do anything on your end other than authorizing your SSL request via e-mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS
If you get a virtual private server from us, you'll receive a dedicated IP address by default and an additional one in case you obtain a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IP addresses for any purpose - a site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you'll be able to use to point to your VPS any domain name which you want to host. You can even add extra dedicated IPs to your VPS account any time you need them. This can be done via the billing Control Panel that you will acquire to manage renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it will take only a couple of clicks. After you send your order, the extra IP addresses will be available, so you'll be able to use them the way you like.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a dedicated server, you probably want to run a web application or host a lot of websites, so we supply three dedicated IP addresses free of charge with each plan and you are able to use them as you see fit - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain which you've registered here or through another company. The last option is very useful in case you use your dedicated server to host users' websites due to the fact that it will give you trustworthiness and anonymity as a web hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add extra IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, so you can go ahead and start using your new dedicated IP addresses a couple of minutes after you send your order.
