If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a special number that's used to distinguish a device connected to the Net. The website name that you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there're far more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for several websites even in case they belong to several users. While this does not affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a given site, granting it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to protect the payment or login details that your website visitors type in, you should have an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
When you use any of our shared website hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account without any difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have chosen for the account throughout the sign-up process, therefore you're able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can edit each and every domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through us, you're able to use our auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you'd like to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
With only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you can add one or several dedicated IP addresses to your Linux semi-dedicated hosting plan and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will allow you to find the available IP addresses and to monitor the ones which are in use with ease. If you wish to obtain a new IP for an SSL certificate, you can use the auto-configuration function, that is available in our SSL order wizard. If you activate this option, you will not have to do anything after you post your order because our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, and then set up the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without any action on your end. This way, you will be able to shield the data that visitors upload on your site even when you lack previous experience with this kind of matters.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All of the VPS hosting plans that we supply feature a dedicated IP address, so you will not share your IP with another client with an account on the same physical machine. If you select a web hosting Control Panel for the server throughout the registration process, you'll get a second dedicated IP too and you'll be able to use it for any content that you host on the VPS - an Internet site, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, and the like. In case you need more IP addresses, you are able to order them as a further upgrade from your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server within a matter of minutes. You can take care of the IPs without any difficulty using your web hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you'll get to command the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Since all of our dedicated web hosting plans feature 3 dedicated IP addresses provided in the plans as standard, we will give you a serious advantage if you wish to run any software that requires this type of an IP. We supply them free of cost and you'll be able to 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 website on the server, a software server (games, VOIP), and so on. From the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll get to control renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you can also acquire more dedicated IP addresses in sets of three any time. They'll be assigned to your server in minutes, so that you can start using them for your websites and web-based apps without delay.
