When you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a unique number which is used to detect any device connected to the Internet. The website name that you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there're far more sites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the same IP for many different websites even if they are owned by separate users. While this does not affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a given site, providing it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you would like to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors enter, you'll need an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
In case you host your websites on our advanced cloud platform and you have a shared hosting plan, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. The aforementioned option is available in all the data center facilities where we provide services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice throughout the registration process, you're able to obtain a dedicated IP address for your sites. You can add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any moment. If any of the IPs that you purchase will be used for an SSL certificate, you could enable the automatic configuration attribute in our SSL order wizard and then our system will request and assign the IP before it installs your certificate automatically. Our flexible platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP address for various websites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes just a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a web hosting account before, you won't have any kind of difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP address instead of the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you will also find all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you're already using it. In case that you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you're able to select everything to be set up automatically. With 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 couple of minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end apart from approving the SSL request via electronic mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting
If you buy a virtual private server from our company, you'll receive a dedicated IP address automatically and an additional one when you obtain a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You will be able to use the IPs for any kind of purpose - a site, 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 want to host. Also, you can add extra dedicated IP addresses to your VPS account every time you need them. This can be done from the billing Control Panel that you'll acquire to control renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it takes no more than a couple of clicks. Soon after you post your order, the extra IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you will be able to use them the way you like.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting
In case you need a dedicated server, you probably would like to run some web app or host a number of websites, so we supply 3 dedicated IPs absolutely free with every single plan and you'll be able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain that you have registered here or through another company. The last mentioned option is really useful in case you use the dedicated server to host users' websites considering that it will give you authority and anonymity as a hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will enable you to add more IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes just a few clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you can go ahead and take advantage of the new dedicated IP addresses a few minutes after you send your order.
