When you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - an exclusive number which is used to distinguish a device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. As there're many more sites than IPs, shared hosting servers use a single IP for a variety of websites even if they belong to different users. While this does not affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a given site, giving it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you plan to secure the payment or login information that your site visitors type in, you will need an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting
In case you host your websites on our cutting-edge cloud platform and you have a website hosting
package, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any time 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 whatever your choice throughout the registration process, you can obtain a dedicated IP for your sites. You can add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. In case any of the IPs that you buy will be used for an SSL certificate, you could enable the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and then our system will request & assign the IP before it installs the certificate automatically. Our flexible platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP address for multiple websites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy a semi-dedicated server
account through us, you will have the opportunity to get as many dedicated IPs as you'd like depending on the needs you have. It will take a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to acquire a new IP plus a couple of more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very simple and your website will start loading from the new IP address in minutes. Hepsia will enable you to view all of the IP addresses which you'll be able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. If you would like to use an SSL certificate on any of your sites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, which can assign a new IP and install the certificate as soon as you upload your order, so you will not have to customize anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS
If you purchase a virtual private server
from our company, you will receive one dedicated IP address as standard and a second one when you obtain a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You will be able to use the IP addresses for any sort of purpose - a 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 that you wish to host. You may also add more dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account every time you need them. This can be done from the billing Control Panel that you will receive in order to take care of renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations and it will take no more than a few clicks. Shortly after you submit your order, the extra IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you'll be able to use them as you see fit.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
As you are able to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server
, all of our plans feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you plan to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you can use the IPs which we supply for free. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you have registered with us or elsewhere then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you run a website hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. In case you need more IPs than the three the packages come with, you will be able to buy additional ones in increments of three either during the registration process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
