If you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - a special number which is used to distinguish a device connected to the Internet. The domain name which you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there're far more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for a number of sites even if they are owned by separate users. Even though this doesn't affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a particular site, giving it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you wish to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors submit, you need an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
With a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to obtain a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks regardless of where your account is - in the US, Great Britain or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains part of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are allotted to. If you would like to use an SSL certificate to protect the info of your site visitors and you get it through us, our system will 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 may still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion forum where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes just a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a web hosting account before, you will not have any kind of difficulties to acquire and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP as an alternative to the server's shared one and you'll be able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you will also find all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is available or you are already using it. In case that you want an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you are able to select everything to be set up automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up the certificate within minutes, so you shall not have to do anything on your end except for approving the SSL order through e-mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All of the Linux VPS servers that we supply feature a dedicated IP, so you will not share the IP with some other customer with an account on the very same server. In case you choose a hosting Control Panel for the server during the signup process, you'll get one more dedicated IP too and you'll be able to use it for any content which you host on the VPS - a site, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etcetera. In case you require more IPs, you are able to order them as an extra upgrade using your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server quickly. You will be able to take care of your IPs with ease using your hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you will receive to maintain the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
As our dedicated service offer 3 dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans by default, we'll give you a head start if you'd like to run any software that requires this type of an IP. We supply them cost-free and you'll be able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain which you host, an SSL certificate for any site on the server, a software server (games, VOIP), etcetera. From the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will receive to take care of renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you'll also be able to acquire more dedicated IPs in sets of three at any moment. They will be assigned to your server in no time, so you can start using them for your sites and web-based apps without delay.
