If you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that is used to identify any device connected to the Web. The website name which you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there're a lot more sites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use a single IP for a variety of sites even if they are owned by separate users. While this does not affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a particular website, providing it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you would like to secure the payment or login data that your website visitors enter, you should have an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
Using a shared hosting
account on our cloud platform, you're able to purchase a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks regardless of where your account is - in the US, Britain or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains section of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they are assigned to. When you would like to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the info of your visitors and you get it through our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't have to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a message board where users can share opinions about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you obtain a semi-dedicated server
account through us, you have the opportunity to get as many dedicated IP addresses as you need depending on your business needs. It takes just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to get your new IP and a few more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very easy and your site will start opening from the new IP address in a few minutes. Hepsia will allow you to view all IPs which you can use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. If you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and set up the certificate as soon as you send your order, so you will not have to modify anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting
In case you buy a virtual private server
from us, you'll receive one dedicated IP address as standard and an additional one when you acquire a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You're able to use the IP addresses for any sort of purpose - an Internet site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you'll be able to use to point to your VPS any domain name that you want to host. In addition, you can add more dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account if you need them. This can be done via the billing Control Panel that you will receive so as to manage renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it takes just a few clicks. Soon after you upload your order, the added IP addresses will be available, so you'll be able to use them as you see fit.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All the dedicated servers hosting packages
that we provide come with 3 dedicated IP addresses as standard and absolutely free. You're able to use them for any type of purpose according to the content that you have on the server - an online 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 customers can use to redirect domain names to their hosting accounts, etceterra. You will also be able to order more dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with your server. You will be able to obtain the IPs in groups of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server shortly after you send your order, so that you can use them without any delays.
