When you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that's used to detect a device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name which you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. As there are a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for multiple websites even in case they belong to separate users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a website, providing it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you wish to secure the payment or login information that your site visitors enter, you'll need an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
When you use some of our shared hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have chosen for your account during the sign-up process, which means that you are able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can modify each domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from our company, you are able to use our auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you'd like to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel, that is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it very simple to acquire a dedicated IP address and use it for any site that you have in the account irrespective of whether it's under a domain or a subdomain. With only a few clicks you'll be able to order the IP and when our system assigns it, you'll be able to set it for one or several sites from the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel. In the same place you will also be able to find what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, a long list of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what site they are assigned to? In case the IP you will need is for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to take full advantage of our useful SSL wizard which will make the whole process very simple since it'll request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and after that set up the SSL without the need of any action on your side other than placing your order.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
If you obtain a VPS server from our company, you'll have one dedicated IP address by default and another one if you get a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IP addresses for any purpose - an Internet site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you can use to point to your VPS any website which you want to host. Also, you can add extra dedicated IPs to the VPS account any time you need them. You can do this via the billing Control Panel that you will obtain so as to manage renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it will take no more than a couple of clicks. Shortly after you submit your order, the extra IP addresses will be available, so you are able to use them as you see fit.
