When you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a special number that's used to identify any kind of device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name which you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there're many more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for multiple websites even in case they belong to several users. Even though this does not affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a certain website, giving it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to secure the payment or login info that your website visitors type in, you should have an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you host your sites on our up-to-date cloud platform and you have a cloud website hosting package, you are able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any moment and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. The aforementioned option is available in all data centers where we offer services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so irrespective of your choice throughout the registration process, you are able to acquire a dedicated IP for your websites. You will be able to add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any moment. In case any of the IPs that you acquire will be used for an SSL certificate, you could activate the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and our system will request and assign the IP before it installs your certificate automatically. Our flexible platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP for a number of websites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you obtain a semi-dedicated server account through us, you have the opportunity to get as many dedicated IP addresses as you'd like depending on your business needs. It will take a few clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to buy your new IP plus a couple of more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very simple and your site will start opening from the new IP address in minutes. Hepsia will allow you to see all of the IP addresses that you can use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. Provided you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you submit your order, so you won't need to change anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that we supply come with a dedicated IP, so you won't share the IP with any other customer with a different account on the very same server. If you choose a hosting Control Panel for the server during the signup process, you'll get an extra dedicated IP too and you can use it for any content which you host on the VPS - an Internet site, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etc. If you require more IPs, you are able to order them as a further upgrade using your billing Control Panel and they will be assigned to your server very quickly. You can control the IPs without difficulty through your website hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you will obtain to maintain the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Considering that you're able to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all our packages feature three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you wish to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs which we provide you with without charge. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you've registered with our company or somewhere else and then use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you run a web hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. When you need more IP addresses than the three our plans provide you with, you'll be able to purchase additional ones in increments of three either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
