When you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a unique number which is used to distinguish any kind of device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there are many more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for many different sites even if they belong to several users. Even though this does not affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a certain site, granting it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you plan to secure the payment or login info that your website visitors enter, you need an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
We supply dedicated IPs with all our cloud hosting plans regardless of the data center location and you can buy one or several IPs via your Hepsia Control Panel. A new section will show up in your account and you'll be able to request, view or delete your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You will be able to decide how many websites or subdomains will use a particular IP as you can assign one with a few clicks to every hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be your main website, that uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer services or goods online and it can have a dedicated IP address in addition to an SSL certificate. You can switch 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 few of your sites to use a single dedicated IP provided that there is no SSL activated for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
With only 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 hosting plan and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will allow you to see the available IP addresses and to check the ones which are in use in no time. In case you would like to obtain a new IP for an SSL certificate, you can use the auto-configuration function, which is available in our SSL order wizard. If you enable this feature, you won't need 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 install the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. In this way, you will be able to shield the information that visitors post on your site even when you don't have any previous experience with such matters.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
If you buy a VPS server from our company, you'll have one dedicated IP address automatically and an extra one when you get a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IPs 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 that you want to host. Also, you can add more dedicated IPs to the VPS account if you need them. This can be done via the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain in order to control renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it takes no more than a few clicks. After you post your order, the additional IP addresses will be accessible, so you will be able to use them the way you like.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated web hosting plans that we offer include 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and cost-free. You're able to use them for any type of purpose based on the content that you've got on the server - a video game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients can use to direct domains to their website hosting accounts, etceterra. In addition, you can order extra dedicated IPs via the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with the server. You can get the IPs in sets of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server shortly after you submit your order, so you can start using them without delays.
