When you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - a special number that's used to distinguish every device connected to the Net. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Because there're far more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for several sites even if they are owned by several users. While this doesn't affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a website, granting it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you plan to protect the payment or login details that your website visitors submit, you should have an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting
If you use any of our cloud web hosting packages, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account with ease and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have chosen for the account during the registration process, so you are able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. 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 as you can modify each and every domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from us, you will be able to use the auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you wish 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 a variety of dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated hosting plan and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will help you see the available IPs and to keep track of the ones that are in use with ease. In case you want to obtain a new IP for an SSL certificate, you are able to use the auto-configuration function, which is available in our SSL order wizard. When you activate this feature, you won't need to do anything after you submit your order because our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, then add the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. That way, you'll be able to protect the data that visitors submit on your site even if you lack previous experience with this type of matters.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
We give a free of charge dedicated IP address with each and every VPS web hosting plans that we supply and when you pick a website hosting Control Panel on your VPS order page, you'll acquire a second dedicated IP for free. Your addresses can be used for any type of purpose - an Internet site in case you wish to set up an SSL certificate or a server IP when you plan to manage some app such as VOIP software, for example. You can also use the IP addresses to register child name servers for one or multiple domain names that you have and after that you can set them as NS records for any other domain that you would like to point to your Virtual Server. When you need additional dedicated IPs, it will take you just a couple of clicks in your billing Control Panel to acquire them and they will be allotted to your server in minutes.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Because our dedicated web hosting plans feature 3 dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans as standard, we'll give you a head start in case you would like to run any app that needs such an IP. We supply them free of charge and you are able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain which you host, an SSL certificate for any site on the server, a software server (online games, VOIP), and so on. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will get to manage renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you will also be able to acquire more dedicated IP addresses in sets of three whenever you need. They'll be assigned to your server very quickly, so you can start using them for your websites and web-based apps right away.
