When you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a unique number that is used to identify any kind of device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name which you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Because there are a lot more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for a number of websites even if they belong to several users. Even though this doesn't affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a website, granting it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors type in, you will need an IP alongside the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
When you use a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the United States, Great Britain or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains section of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're allotted to. When you wish to use an SSL certificate to protect the info of your visitors and you get it through us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't need to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a message board where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes no more than a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a hosting account before, you will not have any kind of difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP. Every domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP instead of the server's shared one and you can make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you can also view all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is accessible or you are already using it. In case that you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you're able to select everything to be set up automatically. Using this particular feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install your certificate in a matter of minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end except for approving the SSL order via electronic mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
In case you get a VPS server from us, you will be given a dedicated IP address automatically and an additional one if you acquire a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You'll be able to use the IPs for any kind of purpose - an Internet site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you are able to use to point to your VPS any domain name that you wish to host. Additionally, you can add extra dedicated IPs to your VPS account any time you need them. You can do this via the billing Control Panel that you'll get to control renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations and it will take only a couple of clicks. Soon after you send your order, the extra IP addresses will be available, so you can use them as you see fit.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All the dedicated service that we supply come with three dedicated IP addresses by default and for free. You'll be able to use them for any kind of purpose based on the content that you have on the server - an online game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your customers can use to point domain names to their hosting accounts, and much more. You can also obtain additional dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones which come with your server. You'll be able to get the IPs in groups of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server soon after you send your order, so you can start using them with no delays.
