If you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - an exclusive number which is used to distinguish every device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there are far more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for multiple sites even if they are owned by separate users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a particular site, giving it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you wish to protect the payment or login data that your website visitors type in, you should have an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting
When you use a web hosting account on our cloud platform, you can buy a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks regardless of where your account is - in the United States, the UK or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains area of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they are allotted to. In case you wish to use an SSL certificate so as to protect the information of your website visitors and you acquire it through us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not have 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 address - a discussion forum where users can share opinions about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you will get the option to obtain as many dedicated IP addresses as you need depending on your preferences. It takes just a few clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to acquire your new IP plus a couple of more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very simple and your site will start loading from the new IP address within minutes. Hepsia will allow you to view all the IPs which you will be able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. Provided you'd like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and install the certificate as soon as you send your order, so you won't have to customize anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account manually.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
Our VPS web hosting plans come with one dedicated IP as standard and in case you select a hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, Hepsia, cPanel) during the registration process, you'll get an extra one too absolutely free. You will be able to employ them the way you like - to access online content, to manage a web app, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website which you have and use the latter for any other website that you need to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you'll be able to manage all plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain name registrations will enable you to order more dedicated IP addresses if you need them for any purpose. Just a couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you will be able to use them instantly.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
As all our dedicated web hosting plans come with 3 dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans by default, we'll give you a serious advantage in case you wish to run any application that requires this kind of an IP. We supply them at zero cost and you can use them for as long as you use your server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain which you host, an SSL certificate for any site on the server, a software server (games, VOIP), etcetera. Through the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will obtain to manage renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you can also purchase more dedicated IPs in groups of three any time. They'll be assigned to your server very quickly, so you can start using them for your websites and web-based applications right away.
