If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - a unique number which is used to distinguish a device connected to the Web. The website name which you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Because there're far more websites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for a number of sites even if they are owned by separate users. Even though this doesn't affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a given website, providing it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you would like to protect the payment or login data that your site visitors type in, you need an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting
With a website hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to buy a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks wherever your account is - in the United States, the UK or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains area of our 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 allotted to. In case you want to use an SSL certificate so as to secure the information of your website visitors and you obtain it from 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. In the meantime, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion forum where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, will make it very simple to buy a dedicated IP address and use it for any site that you have in your account regardless if it's under a domain or a subdomain. With only a couple of clicks you're able to order the IP and when our system assigns it, you can set it for one or multiple sites from the Hosted Domains part of the Control Panel. In the same location you can also find what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, an index of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what site they are assigned to? In case the IP you will need is for an SSL certificate, you can take full advantage of our user-friendly SSL wizard which will make the entire process really easy due to the fact that it'll request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and after that install the SSL without any action on your side apart from placing your order.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting
In case you buy a virtual private server from us, you will be given one dedicated IP address as standard and a second one if you obtain a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You will be able to use the IPs for any purpose - an Internet site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you are able to use to point to your VPS any website that you would like to host. In addition, you can add more dedicated IPs to your VPS account when you need them. This can be done via the billing Control Panel that you'll acquire to control renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it takes only a few clicks. Shortly after you upload your order, the extra IP addresses will be accessible, so you can use them as you see fit.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting
In case you obtain a dedicated server, you probably plan to run a web application or host numerous websites, so we supply three dedicated IPs absolutely free with every single plan and you'll be able to use them the way you like - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain that you've registered here or via another company. The last option is really useful when you use the dedicated server to host users' websites due to the fact that it will give you trustworthiness and anonymity as a hosting company. The server billing Control Panel will enable you to add additional IP addresses as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes only a few clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you'll be able to go ahead and take advantage of your brand new dedicated IP addresses several minutes after you send your order.
