If you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - an exclusive number which is used to detect every device connected to the Net. The domain name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there are a lot more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for many different sites even in case they belong to separate users. While this doesn't affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a given site, granting it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to protect the payment or login details that your website visitors type in, you'll need an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
We supply dedicated IP addresses with all our shared website hosting plans irrespective of the data center location and you will be able to purchase one or several IPs via your Hepsia Control Panel. A new section will appear as part of your account and you're able to request, delete or view your IPs with several clicks. You'll be able to select how many sites or subdomains will use a certain IP since you can assign one with a few clicks to any hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be your main site, which uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer goods or services on the web and it could have a dedicated IP along with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a website uses through the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set a couple of of your websites to use a single dedicated IP given that there is no SSL set up for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel, which is supplied with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it very easy to obtain a dedicated IP and use it for any kind of site that you have in your account no matter if it's under a domain or a subdomain. With just a couple of clicks you can order the IP and once our system assigns it, you will be able to set it for one or several websites from 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 are assigned to? If the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you can take full advantage of our user-friendly SSL wizard that will make the whole process very easy since it'll request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and after that set up the SSL without any action on your side apart from placing your order.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
If you purchase a VPS server from us, you'll have a dedicated IP address automatically and a second one if you acquire a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You'll be able to use the IPs for any sort of purpose - an Internet site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you'll be able to use to point to your VPS any domain that you want to host. You can even add extra dedicated IPs to your VPS account every time you need them. This can be done through the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain to take care of renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it takes only a few clicks. Shortly after you send your order, the extra IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you're able to use them the way you like.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All Linux dedicated web hosting plans that we offer feature 3 dedicated IP addresses as standard and absolutely free. You are able to use them for any purpose depending on the content that you have on the server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your clients can use to direct domains to their hosting accounts, and much more. You will also be able to buy more dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with the server. You'll be able to buy the IPs in groups of three and they will be added to your dedicated server shortly after you send your order, which means that you can start using them without delays.
