When you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - a special number that's used to distinguish any kind of device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain 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 of the server. As there are many more websites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for multiple websites even if 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 website, providing it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you would like to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors enter, you should have an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting
We provide dedicated IP addresses with all our Linux cloud website hosting packages irrespective of the data center location and you are able to buy one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. A fresh section will appear inside your account and you can request, delete or view your IPs with just a few clicks. You can choose what number of sites or subdomains will use a certain IP as you can assign one with a couple of clicks to any hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be your main site, that uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer services or goods on the net and it can have a dedicated IP combined with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a site uses from the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set some of your sites to use one and the same dedicated IP provided that there is no SSL installed for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you obtain a semi-dedicated server account from us, you have the option to get as many dedicated IP addresses as you like depending on the needs you have. It will take a couple of clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to buy your new IP plus a few more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very easy and your website will start opening from the new IP address within minutes. Hepsia will allow you to see all IP addresses that you're able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. In case you want to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you need 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 once you upload your order, so you won't have to modify anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account manually.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting
In case you acquire a dedicated server, you probably would like to run a web app or host a lot of sites, so we supply 3 dedicated IPs gratis with each package and you will be able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain which you have registered here or via another company. The last mentioned option is really helpful when you use the dedicated server to host customers' sites considering that it'll give you trustworthiness and anonymity as a website hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will enable you to add additional IPs as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you're able to go ahead and start using your new dedicated IP addresses just a few minutes after you submit your order.
