When you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a special number which is used to identify any device connected to the World Wide Web. The website 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 a lot more sites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for many different websites even in case they are owned by several users. While this doesn't affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a site, giving it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you plan to secure the payment or login details that your website visitors submit, you need an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
If you use any of our cloud hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account in no time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have selected for the account during the signup process, so it's possible to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In 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 since you can edit each domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through our company, you will be able to use the 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
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes no more than a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a web hosting account before, you will not encounter any kind of difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP address. Each domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP in place of the server's shared one and you're able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also find all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is free or you're already using it. In case that you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you will be able to select everything to be set up automatically. Using this feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install the certificate within a matter of minutes, so you won't need to do anything on your end other than approving your SSL order via electronic mail.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
As it is possible to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all of our packages come with three dedicated IP addresses included by default. If you want 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 you with for free. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any website name that you have registered with us or any place else and then employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you manage a hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone service provider. When you need more IP addresses than the three the packages feature, you're able to purchase additional ones in increments of three either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
