If you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - a unique number that is used to detect every device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name which you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there are far more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for multiple websites even in case they are owned by different users. Even though this does not affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a given site, granting it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you would like to secure the payment or login data that your website visitors type in, you need an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Hosting
When you use a hosting
account on our cloud platform, you will be able to purchase a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks wherever your account is - in the United States, Great Britain or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains section of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're allotted to. In case you want to use an SSL certificate so as to protect the info of your site visitors and you get it through us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't need to do 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 - a community forum where users can share their opinion 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 address takes only a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a hosting account previously, you will not experience any kind of difficulties to acquire and assign a dedicated IP. Each domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP other than the server's shared one and you can make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you will also see all IPs that your websites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is accessible or you are already using it. If you want an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you'll be able to select everything to be installed automatically. When you use this feature, our system will change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up the certificate in a matter of minutes, so you won't have to do anything on your end except for approving the SSL request through e-mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All VPS web hosting plans
that we provide include a dedicated IP, so you won't share the IP with some other customer with some other account on the same server. In case you choose a hosting Control Panel for the server during the signup process, you'll receive one more dedicated IP as well and you can use it for any content that you host on the VPS - an Internet site, an app, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etcetera. In case you require more IPs, you're able to order them as an additional upgrade through your billing Control Panel and they will be assigned to your server very quickly. You will be able to control your IPs with ease using your hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you will receive to take care of the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Because you are able to run more or less anything on a dedicated server
, all our plans feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included by default. If you would like to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you can use the IPs which we provide you with free of charge. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any website name that you've registered through us or any place else and then use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you have a web hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent supplier. In case you need more IP addresses than the three our packages provide you with, you are able to get additional ones in increments of 3 either throughout the registration process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
