When you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - a unique number which is used to detect any kind of device connected to the Net. The domain name which you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there're a lot more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use a single IP for a number of sites even in case they are owned by several users. While this doesn't affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a site, providing it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to secure the payment or login data that your website visitors type in, you should have an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting
We supply dedicated IP addresses with all our shared web hosting service regardless of the data center location and you'll be able to obtain one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will appear inside your account and you are able to request, view or delete your IPs with a few clicks. You will be able to decide what number of websites or subdomains will use a given IP as you can assign one with a couple of clicks to every hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be your main site, which uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer goods or services on the internet and it could have a dedicated IP combined with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a domain uses via the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set a couple of of your websites to use one and the same dedicated IP given that there is no SSL installed for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes just a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a hosting account before, you won't have any difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP address rather than the server's shared one and you are able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you will also view all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is available or you are already using it. In case that you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you will be able to select everything to be set up automatically. Using this particular feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up your certificate within minutes, so you shall not need to do anything on your end apart from approving the SSL order via email.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
In case you get a VPS server from our company, you will be given one dedicated IP address as standard and an extra one when you acquire a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You are able to use the IPs for any sort of purpose - a site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you're able to use to point to your VPS any website which you wish to host. You can also add extra dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account when you need them. You can do this from the billing Control Panel that you'll receive to manage renewals, upgrade purchases and domain name registrations and it takes just a few clicks. Shortly after you post your order, the added IP addresses will be accessible, so you can use them the way you like.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All of the Linux dedicated service that we offer feature 3 dedicated IP addresses as standard and cost-free. You'll be able to employ them for any type of purpose according to the content that you've got on your server - an online game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients may use to point domains to their hosting accounts, etc. You'll also be able to purchase more dedicated IP addresses from the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones which come with your plan. You will be able to obtain the IPs in groups of three and they will be added to your dedicated server soon after you submit your order, so that you can use them without any delays.
