If you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a special number that's used to detect a device connected to the Internet. The website name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. As there're many more sites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the same IP for multiple websites even in case they belong to several users. Even though this doesn't affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a particular website, giving it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you wish to protect the payment or login information that your site visitors type in, you should have an IP alongside the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
When you use a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform, you'll be able to get a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks no matter where your account is - in the United States, Great Britain or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains section of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they are allotted to. If you wish to use an SSL certificate so as to secure the information of your website visitors and you obtain it from us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion board where users can share their opinion about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
With just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you can add one or several dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated hosting plan and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will allow you to find the available IPs and to keep track of the ones that are in use with ease. If you would like to acquire a new IP for an SSL certificate, you can use the auto-configuration function, which is available in our SSL order wizard. When you enable this feature, you won't have to do anything after you send in your order as our system will request a dedicated IP address, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, and then install the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. This way, you can protect the information that visitors submit on your site even when you lack previous experience with this type of matters.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All of our VPS servers provide you with one dedicated IP address by default and when you select a hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, Hepsia, cPanel) throughout the registration process, you will get an additional one too at no extra cost. You're able to employ them as you see fit - to access web content, to run a web app, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name which you have and use the latter for any other domain that you intend to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you'll be able to control all of the plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will enable you to order additional dedicated IPs if you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them right away.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Considering that you're able to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our packages feature three dedicated IP addresses included by default. If you want to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you're able to use the IPs which we supply absolutely free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you have registered through us or anywhere else then employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you own a hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. When you need more IPs than the three the plans provide you with, you can purchase extra ones in increments of three either during the registration process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
