If you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number which is used to detect any device connected to the Net. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there are many more sites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for many different websites even in case they belong to several users. While this does not affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a certain site, providing it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you plan to secure the payment or login information that your site visitors enter, you need an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
We supply dedicated IPs with all our Linux shared website hosting services regardless of the data center location and you will be able to acquire one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. A fresh section will appear as part of your account and you're able to request, delete or view your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You can choose how many sites or subdomains will use a particular IP since you can assign one with a few clicks to any hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be your main site, that uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer services or goods on the internet and it could have a dedicated IP address combined with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP that a domain uses through the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set a couple of of your websites to use the same dedicated IP as long as there is no SSL activated for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes only a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a web hosting account previously, you will not have any difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP address rather than the server's shared one and you can make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also view all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is accessible 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 can 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 will install your certificate within minutes, so you won't need to do anything on your end except for approving your SSL request through email.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting
If you acquire a virtual private server from our company, you'll be given a dedicated IP address by default and another one in case you get a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You'll be able to use the IP addresses for any sort of purpose - a website, 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 name that you intend to host. You may also add extra dedicated IP addresses to your VPS account when you need them. This can be done from the billing Control Panel that you will acquire so as to manage renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it takes just a few clicks. Shortly after you send your order, the additional IP addresses will be accessible, so you're able to use them as you see fit.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you purchase a dedicated server, you probably plan to run a web app or host a number of Internet sites, so we provide 3 dedicated IP addresses free of cost with each package and you will be able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name which you've registered here or via another company. The aforementioned option is very helpful in case you use your dedicated server to host clients' Internet sites as it will give you trustworthiness and anonymity as a web hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add extra IPs as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, so you can go ahead and use the new dedicated IPs several minutes after you send your order.
