When you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a unique number which is used to detect any kind of device connected to the Net. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there are a lot more websites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for a number of websites even if they belong to different users. While this does not affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a particular site, giving it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you plan to secure the payment or login data that your site visitors type in, you need an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
We offer dedicated IPs with all of our cloud hosting services whatever the data center location and you're able to purchase one or several IPs from your Hepsia Control Panel. A new section will show up as part of your account and you're able to request, view or delete your IPs with a couple of clicks. You'll be able to select what number of sites or subdomains will use a particular IP since you can assign one with a few clicks to any hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be the main site, which uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer goods or services on the internet and it might have a dedicated IP address combined with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which a site uses via the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set a couple of of your websites to use a single dedicated IP as long as there is no SSL set up for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes no more than a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a web hosting account before, you won't have any kind of difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP address in place of the server's shared one and you can make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also see all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is available or you're already using it. In case that you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you're able to select everything to be installed automatically. With this feature, our system will change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up your certificate in a matter of minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end other than authorizing the SSL request through email.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting
If you get a virtual private server from us, you will have a dedicated IP address as standard and another one in case you acquire a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IP addresses for any purpose - an Internet site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you'll be able to use to point to your VPS any domain that you would like to host. You can even add more dedicated IPs to your VPS account every time you need them. This can be done through the billing Control Panel that you'll get so as to take care of renewals, upgrade purchases and domain name registrations and it will take only a couple of clicks. Soon after you post your order, the extra IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you will be able to use them as you see fit.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Because you'll be able to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our plans come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you plan to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs which we provide you with without charge. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you have registered with our company or any place else and employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you have a hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone service provider. In case you need more IP addresses than the three our packages provide you with, you'll be able to purchase extra ones in increments of 3 either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
