If you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - a unique number which is used to identify any device connected to the Web. The website name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there're a lot more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for a variety of websites even in case they are owned by separate users. While this does not affect the site performance directly, using 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 installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you want to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors submit, you will need an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting
We provide dedicated IPs with all of our Linux cloud website hosting whatever the data center location and you are able to get one or several IPs via your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will show up inside your account and you can request, view or delete your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You are able to select how many sites or subdomains will use a given IP as you can assign one with a few clicks to any hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be the main website, that uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer services or goods on the internet and it can have a dedicated IP together with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which a website uses from 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 couple of of your websites to use the same dedicated IP given that there's no SSL set up for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
With just a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to add one or multiple dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated server and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will help you find the available IPs and to monitor the ones which are in use with ease. Provided you wish to obtain a new IP for an SSL certificate, you're able to use the auto-configuration function, which is available in our SSL order wizard. When you enable this option, you will not need to do anything after you submit your order as our system will request a dedicated IP address, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, and then set up the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. In this way, you can protect the details that visitors post on your site even if you don't have any previous experience with this type of matters.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
Our Linux VPS servers provide you with one dedicated IP by default and when you choose a website hosting Control Panel (cPanel, Hepsia, DirectAdmin) during the registration process, you will obtain an additional one too for free. You will be able to use them as you see fit - to access web content, to manage a web application, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website which you have and use the latter for any other domain that you plan to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you will be able to take care of all plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will enable you to order more dedicated IPs if you need them for any purpose. Just a few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them immediately.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
In case you get a dedicated server, you probably want to run some web app or host a number of sites, so we provide 3 dedicated IPs free of charge with each and every plan and you will be able to use them as you see fit - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name that you've registered here or via another company. The aforementioned option is really useful when you use your dedicated server to host users' websites considering that it will give you credibility and anonymity as a website hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will enable you to add more IP addresses as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you'll be able to go ahead and use your new dedicated IPs just a couple of minutes after you send your order.
