When you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a unique number that is used to identify any device connected to the Net. The domain name which you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. As there are far more sites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for multiple websites even if they belong to several users. Even though this does not affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a particular website, granting it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you would like to secure the payment or login information that your website visitors enter, you should have an IP alongside the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
We offer dedicated IPs with all our Linux shared hosting whatever the data center location and you will be able to buy one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will appear in your account and you'll be able to request, view or delete your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You can decide what number of domains or subdomains will use a certain IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to every hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be the main site, which uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be your 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 switch the IP which a website uses through 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 few of your websites to use a single dedicated IP as long as there's no SSL activated for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes just a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a website hosting account previously, you will not have any difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP address. Each domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP address in place of the server's shared one and you can make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you can also see all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. In case that you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you'll be able to select everything to be set up automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up your certificate within a matter of minutes, so you shall not have to do anything on your end other than approving the SSL order through electronic mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
If you get a VPS server from our company, you will have a dedicated IP address by default and another one when you get a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You are able to use the IP addresses for any kind of purpose - an Internet site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you can use to point to your VPS any domain name that you wish to host. Also, you can add more dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account if you need them. This can be done from the billing Control Panel that you will acquire so as to take care of renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations and it will take only a couple of clicks. Soon after you upload your order, the added IP addresses will be accessible, so you are able to use them the way you like.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
As all of our dedicated servers offer 3 dedicated IP addresses provided in the plans as standard, we shall give you a serious advantage in case you'd like to run any app that requires such an IP. We provide them cost-free and you can use them for as long as you use the server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain name which you host, an SSL certificate for any site on your server, a software server (online games, VOIP), etcetera. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will obtain to control renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you'll also be able to obtain more dedicated IP addresses in groups of three at any moment. They will be assigned to your server in no time, so that you can start using them for your websites and web-based applications without delay.
