When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number which is used to identify every device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. As there're a lot more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the same IP for a number of websites even in case they belong to separate users. Even though this doesn't affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a certain website, providing it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you want to secure the payment or login data that your site visitors submit, you should have 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 obtain a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks regardless of where your account is - in the USA, Britain or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains part of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're assigned to. When you wish to use an SSL certificate so as to protect the information of your website visitors and you get it from our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion board where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

With only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to add one or multiple dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated service and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will help you find the available IP addresses and to check the ones that are in use in no time. Provided you wish to acquire a new IP for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration function, that's available in our SSL order wizard. When you enable this feature, you won't have to do anything after you submit your order since our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, and then set up the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without any action on your end. In this way, you will be able to protect the details that visitors upload on your site even when you lack previous experience with this type of matters.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

If you purchase a VPS server from our company, you will have one dedicated IP address as standard and another one in case you obtain a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IPs for any sort of purpose - a site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you can use to point to your VPS any domain that you would like to host. You can even add more dedicated IP addresses to your VPS account every time you need them. You can do this from the billing Control Panel that you'll get so as to manage renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations and it takes no more than a few clicks. After you post your order, the added IP addresses will be available, so you're able to use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

In case you order a dedicated server, you probably plan to run a web application or host a lot of Internet sites, so we supply 3 dedicated IPs without charge with every single plan and you'll be able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain which you have registered here or via another company. The last option is really helpful in case you use your dedicated server to host users' websites due to the fact that it will give you trustworthiness and anonymity as a website hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add more IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes only a few clicks in the Upgrades section, therefore you will be able to go ahead and employ the brand new dedicated IPs just a couple of minutes after you send your order.
