When you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a unique number that is used to identify a device connected to the Internet. The domain name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there are many more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the same IP for several websites even if they are owned by different users. Even though this doesn't affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a website, giving it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you plan to secure the payment or login information that your site visitors type in, you will need an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting
When you use some of our cloud website hosting packages, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account with ease and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've picked for your account during the sign-up process, thus you are able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can modify each domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from our company, you're able to use the auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you wish to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you have the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IP addresses as you need depending on your business needs. It takes a couple of clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to purchase your new IP and several more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is very simple and your website will start opening from your new IP address in no time. Hepsia will enable you to view all of the IP addresses which you'll be able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. If you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you send your order, so you don't need to modify anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account manually.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All of the VPS servers that we supply include a dedicated IP, so you will not share your IP with some other client with some other account on the very same physical machine. In case you choose a website hosting Control Panel for the server during the registration process, you'll get an extra dedicated IP as well and you're able to use it for any content that you host on the VPS - an Internet site, an app, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etc. If you would like to have more IP addresses, you will be able to order them as a further upgrade from your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server within a matter of minutes. You can control the IPs with ease via your hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you'll get to manage the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
In case you get a dedicated server, you probably would like to run some web application or host a number of sites, so we provide 3 dedicated IP addresses totally free with each and every plan and you can use them the way you like - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name which you have registered here or through another company. The last option is really helpful if you use your dedicated server to host clients' websites due to the fact that it'll give you authority and anonymity as a website hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will enable you to add additional IP addresses as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, so you're able to go ahead and employ your brand new dedicated IPs a few minutes after you send your order.
