When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to detect every device connected to the Net. The website name that you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there are a lot more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the same IP for several websites even in case they belong to different users. Even though this does not affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a particular site, providing it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you wish to protect the payment or login info that your site visitors type in, you will need an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
When you use a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you are able to get a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks wherever your account is - in the United States, Britain or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains area of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are assigned to. In case you wish to use an SSL certificate to secure the information of your site visitors and you get it from our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion board where users can share opinions about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it very easy to acquire a dedicated IP address and use it for any site that you have in the account no matter if it's under a domain or a subdomain. With only a couple of clicks you are able to order the IP and once our system assigns it, you'll be able to set it for one or more sites from the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel. In the same place you will also be able to find what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, a list of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what site they are assigned to? In case the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to take full advantage of our useful SSL wizard which will make the overall process very simple due to the fact that it will request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and after that set up the SSL without the need of any action on your side other than placing the order.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All of our VPS hosting plans feature one dedicated IP address as standard and in case you get a web hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, cPanel, Hepsia) during the signup process, you will acquire a second one too absolutely free. You can employ them the way you like - to access website content, to run a web app, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website that you have and use the latter for any other domain that you intend to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you're able to manage all plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain registrations will enable you to order extra dedicated IP addresses if you need them for any purpose. A few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them right away.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers that we supply include 3 dedicated IP addresses as standard and free of charge. You can use them for any 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 clients can use to direct domain names to their web hosting accounts, and many more. You can also acquire more dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with your plan. You will be able to purchase the IPs in groups of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server soon after you submit your order, so that you can start using them without delays.
