If you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - a unique number which is used to detect every device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name that you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there are far more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the same IP for many different sites even if they belong to different users. Even though this doesn't affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a particular website, giving it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you plan to protect the payment or login data that your site visitors enter, you should have an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
We offer dedicated IPs with all our shared hosting regardless of the data center location and you're able to buy one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will appear inside your account and you'll be able to request, view or delete your IPs with a couple of clicks. You can decide what number of domains or subdomains will use a certain IP as you can assign one with a couple of clicks to every hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be the main website, which uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer goods or services on the net and it could have a dedicated IP along with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP that a site uses through the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set some of your websites to use a single dedicated IP as long as there's no SSL activated for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes just a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a web hosting account previously, you will not have any difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP rather than the server's shared one and you'll be able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you can also view all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is accessible or you are already using it. If you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you can select everything to be installed automatically. With this particular feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install your certificate in a matter of minutes, so you won't have to do anything on your end except for authorizing your SSL request via email.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS
All of the Linux VPS that we provide include a dedicated IP, so you will not share the IP with some other client with an account on the same physical machine. If you select a hosting Control Panel for the server during the signup process, you will get one more dedicated IP too and you are able to use it for any content which you host on your VPS - an Internet site, an app, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etc. In case you would like to have more IP addresses, you are able to order them as an additional upgrade through your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server very quickly. You can take care of the IPs with ease from your web hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel which you will get to take care of the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
Due to the fact that you're able to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all our packages feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included by default. If you would like to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you can use the IPs that we provide you with free of charge. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you have registered with us or any place else and then employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you own a web hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. If you need more IP addresses than the three our packages include, you'll be able to purchase extra ones in increments of 3 either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
