If you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a unique number which is used to detect any kind of device connected to the Net. The website name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. As there are a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use a single IP for a variety of websites even if they belong to separate users. Even though this doesn't affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a given website, providing it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you want to protect the payment or login data that your website visitors type in, you need an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
When you use some of our shared 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 no matter which data center you've selected for the account throughout the sign-up process, therefore 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 electronic commerce site, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains section 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 our auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you'd like to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server
account, adding a new dedicated IP takes only a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a hosting account previously, you will not encounter any difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP rather than the server's shared one and you'll be able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you will also view all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is available or you're already using it. In case that you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you're able to select everything to be installed automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install your certificate within minutes, so you shall not have to do anything on your end except for approving your SSL request through e-mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting
Our Linux VPS hosting
feature one dedicated IP as standard and if you choose a hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, Hepsia, cPanel) during the registration process, you'll acquire an additional one too free of cost. You'll be able to use them as you decide - to access website content, to run a web app, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain that you have and use the latter for any other domain that you want to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you will be able to take care of all of the plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain name registrations will allow you to order additional dedicated IP addresses if you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them straight away.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting
Since it's possible to run more or less anything on a dedicated server
, all of our packages feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you need to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a website 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 IP addresses for any website name that you have registered with us or any place else then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you manage a hosting company, for example, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. In case you need more IP addresses than the three our plans come with, you can get additional ones in increments of 3 either throughout the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
