If you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that's used to detect any device connected to the Net. 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 address of the server. Due to the fact that there're far more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for many different websites even if they belong to different users. Even though this doesn't affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a certain website, granting it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you would like to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors enter, you will need an IP alongside the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
If you use some of our cloud hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account with ease and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have selected for your account during the signup process, thus you will be able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can adjust each and every domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL from us, you will be able to use our auto-configuration tool, which 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 Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes just a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a web hosting account before, you won't encounter any difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP address. Each domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP instead of the server's shared one and you're able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you will also view all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is accessible or you're already using it. If you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you are able to select everything to be set up automatically. When you use this feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up your certificate within minutes, so you won't have to do anything on your end other than approving the SSL order via e-mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS
If you obtain a virtual private server from us, you'll be given a dedicated IP address by default and another one if you acquire a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You are able to use the IP addresses for any purpose - a website, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you can use to point to your VPS any website that you intend to host. In addition, you can add extra dedicated IPs to the VPS account any time you need them. You can do this through the billing Control Panel that you'll receive in order to manage renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it takes only a few clicks. Shortly after you send your order, the extra IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you will be able to use them as you see fit.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
Because all of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages offer 3 dedicated IP addresses provided in the plans by default, we'll give you a head start if you would like to run any application that needs this kind of an IP. We provide them cost-free and you're able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain that you host, an SSL certificate for any website on your server, a software server (games, VOIP), etcetera. From the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll receive to control renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you will also be able to get more dedicated IPs in groups of three any time. They will be assigned to your server very quickly, so you can start using them for your sites and web-based applications right away.
