If you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that is used to identify any device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name that you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. As there're a lot more sites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use a single IP for several sites even if they belong to different users. Even though this doesn't affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a particular website, granting it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you would like to secure the payment or login data that your website visitors enter, you should have an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting
When you use any of our cloud website hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have selected for your account throughout the signup process, which means that you are able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each domain or subdomain individually from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from our company, you can use our auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you would like to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes just a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a hosting account before, you won't have any difficulties to acquire and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP other than the server's shared one and you are able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you can also see all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is accessible or you're already using it. In case that you wish 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 change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install your certificate in a matter of minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end except for approving the SSL request through e-mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS
If you acquire a virtual private server from our company, you will be given one dedicated IP address by default and another one when you get a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You are able to use the IPs for any purpose - a site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you can use to point to your VPS any domain name which you wish to host. Also, you can add more dedicated IP addresses to your VPS account if you need them. This can be done through the billing Control Panel that you'll receive in order to take care of renewals, upgrade purchases and domain name registrations and it takes just a few clicks. Soon after you send your order, the extra IP addresses will be available, so you are able to use them the way you like.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
Because our dedicated hosting services feature three dedicated IP addresses provided in the plans by default, we will give you a serious advantage if you would like to run any software which needs this kind of an IP. We provide them for free and you're able to use them for as long as you use the server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain that you host, an SSL certificate for any website on the server, a software server (games, VOIP), etc. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain to organize renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you'll also be able to obtain more dedicated IP addresses in sets of three whenever you need. They will be assigned to your server within minutes, so you can start using them for your websites and web-based apps without delay.
