When you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a special number that is used to identify any kind of device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there are far more websites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for a variety of websites even in case they belong to several users. Even though this does not affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a certain site, giving it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you plan to protect the payment or login information that your website visitors submit, you will need an IP alongside the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
When you use a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to acquire a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks wherever your account is - in the US, 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 monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're allotted to. In case you want to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the information of your visitors and you obtain it through our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't be required to anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion board where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that is supplied with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it really easy to get a dedicated IP and use it for any website that you have in the account no matter if it is under a domain or a subdomain. With only a few clicks you can order the IP and as soon as our system assigns it, you'll be able to set it for one or multiple websites through the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel. In the same place you will also be able to see what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, a list of the dedicated IP addresses as well as if and what site they're assigned to? In case the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you can take full advantage of our user-friendly SSL wizard which will make the entire process very easy because it'll request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and after that install the SSL without the need of any action on your side aside from placing the order.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting
All the Linux VPS hosting packages that we provide feature a dedicated IP address, so you won't share your IP with another client with some other account on the very same server. In case you select a hosting Control Panel for the server throughout the signup process, you will get an additional dedicated IP too and you're able to use it for any content that you host on your VPS - a website, an app, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etcetera. In case you need more IPs, you're able to order them as an additional upgrade from your billing Control Panel and they will be assigned to your server within a matter of minutes. You can control your IPs without difficulty through your web hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel which you will obtain to command the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you acquire a dedicated server, you probably plan to run a web application or host a lot of websites, so we provide 3 dedicated IP addresses absolutely free with every single package and you are able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name that you've registered here or from another company. The last mentioned option is very helpful if you use your dedicated server to host customers' sites due to the fact that it'll give you authority and anonymity as a website hosting company. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add additional IPs as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes just a few clicks in the Upgrades section, so you can go ahead and take advantage of the new dedicated IP addresses a couple of minutes after you submit your order.
