If you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number which is used to distinguish any device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name which you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there are a lot more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for a number of sites even if they are owned by several users. Even though this doesn't affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a certain website, granting it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you plan to secure the payment or login details that your site visitors type in, you need an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting
When you use a shared web hosting
account on our cloud platform, you can buy a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks no matter where your account is - in the United States, Great Britain or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains section of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are assigned to. When you would like to use an SSL certificate so as to protect the info of your site visitors and you acquire it from our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a message board where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account, adding your new dedicated IP takes no more than a few 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 won't encounter any difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP address. Every domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP instead of the server's shared one and you'll be able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you will also find all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. If you want 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. When you use this particular feature, our system will change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install the certificate in a matter of minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end except for approving your SSL order through electronic mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS
Our VPS services
feature one dedicated IP address as standard and if you select a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, DirectAdmin, cPanel) throughout the signup process, you will acquire a second one as well without charge. You're able to employ them as you see fit - to access site content, to manage a web app, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain which you have and use the latter for any other website that you plan to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you'll be able to manage all plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will enable you to order more dedicated IPs when you need them for any purpose. A few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you will be able to use them right away.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
Considering that you can run almost anything on a dedicated server
, all our plans feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you want to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you will be able to use the IPs that we supply for free. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you have registered through our company or elsewhere and employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you manage a web hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent supplier. If you need more IPs than the three our packages include, you'll be able to get extra ones in increments of 3 either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
