When you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that's used to detect any kind of 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. Due to the fact that there are far more websites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use a single IP for several websites even if they belong to different users. While this does not affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a given site, providing it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you would like to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors type in, you need an IP alongside the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
When you use a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you'll be able to purchase a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks wherever your account is - in the US, Great Britain or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains part of the 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. If you wish to use an SSL certificate to protect the info of your visitors and you get it through our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't have to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a community forum where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to add one or multiple dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated hosting and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will allow you to view the available IPs and to keep track of the ones that are in use with ease. Provided you wish to get a new IP for an SSL certificate, you will be able to use the auto-configuration function, which is available in our SSL order wizard. If you activate this option, you will not need to do anything after you post your order as our system will request a dedicated IP address, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, and then set up the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without any action on your end. In this way, you're able to shield the details that visitors post on your site even when you do not have any previous experience with this type of matters.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting
If you acquire a virtual private server from our company, you'll get one dedicated IP address as standard and an additional one in case you get a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You are able to use the IP addresses for any sort of purpose - a site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you're able to use to point to your VPS any website which you wish to host. In addition, you can add extra dedicated IPs to your VPS account every time you need them. You can do this from the billing Control Panel that you'll get in order to manage renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it takes only a couple of clicks. Shortly after you post your order, the additional IP addresses will be accessible, so you'll be able to use them as you see fit.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Considering that you'll be able to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our plans feature three dedicated IP addresses included by default. If you need to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs which we provide you with for free. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you've registered through us or elsewhere and employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you manage a website hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as an independent provider. In case you need more IPs than the three the packages include, you will be able to purchase additional ones in increments of three either during the signup process or through your billing Control Panel at any time.
