If you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - a unique number which is used to identify a device connected to the Web. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. As there are far more sites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for several sites even in case they are owned by several users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a particular website, granting it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you plan to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors enter, you'll need an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
In case you host your websites on our revolutionary cloud platform and you have a cloud hosting plan, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only a few clicks. This option is available in all data centers where we supply services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so whatever your choice during the registration process, you're able to get a dedicated IP for your websites. You can add / remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. If any of the IPs that you acquire will be used for an SSL certificate, you may activate the automatic configuration attribute in our SSL order wizard then our system will request & assign the IP before it sets up your certificate automatically. Our adaptable platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP for multiple websites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you acquire a semi-dedicated server account from us, you will get the opportunity to obtain as many dedicated IPs as you would like depending on your business needs. It will take a few clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to acquire a new IP and several more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is really easy and your site will start loading from your new IP address in no time. Hepsia will allow you to view all of the IP addresses that you're able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. If you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and set up the certificate as soon as you upload your order, so you won't have to change anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers feature one dedicated IP address by default and when you choose a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, DirectAdmin, cPanel) throughout the signup process, you'll acquire a second one too free of charge. You're able to employ them as you see fit - to access site content, to manage a web app, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain that you have and use the latter for any other website that you would like to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you will be able to control all plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain name registrations will allow you to order additional dedicated IPs if you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them right away.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Because you're able to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all of our packages come with three dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you would like to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you're able to use the IPs that we provide for free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any website name that you've registered with us or any place else and then use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you have a website hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. If you need more IP addresses than the three our packages provide you with, you will be able to purchase additional ones in increments of 3 either during the registration process or through your billing Control Panel at any time.
