When you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that is used to distinguish a device connected to the Net. The website name that you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Because there are many more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for many different websites even in case they belong to different users. Even though this does not affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a given site, providing 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 secure the payment or login details that your website visitors submit, you will need an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
When you use any of our shared website hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've picked for your account throughout the registration process, so you'll be able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can modify each domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from us, you can use our auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you'd like to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
With only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to add one or several dedicated IP addresses to your Linux semi-dedicated server and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will help you view the available IPs and to monitor the ones that are in use in no time. Provided you want to get a new IP for an SSL certificate, you are able to use the auto-configuration function, which is available in our SSL order wizard. If you activate this feature, you will not need to do anything after you send in your order as our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, then add the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without any action on your end. That way, you can shield the information that visitors submit on your site even if you lack previous experience with this type of matters.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All of our VPS web hosting plans come with one dedicated IP address as standard and when you pick a web hosting Control Panel (cPanel, Hepsia, DirectAdmin) throughout the registration process, you'll acquire an additional one too free of charge. You will be able to use them the way you like - to access website content, to manage a web application, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website which you have and use the latter for any other domain that you need to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you'll be able to take care of all the plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain registrations will allow you to order more dedicated IPs if you need them for any purpose. A few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them right away.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Since all our dedicated servers offer 3 dedicated IP addresses provided in the plans by default, we'll give you a serious advantage in case you'd like to run any application which requires this type of an IP. We supply them at zero cost and you can use them for as long as you use your server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain which you host, an SSL certificate for any website on your server, a software server (online games, VOIP), and so on. From the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will get to manage renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you will also be able to acquire more dedicated IPs in groups of three at any moment. They'll be assigned to your server in no time, so that you can start using them for your websites and web-based apps without delay.
