If you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - a special number that is used to identify every device connected to the Web. The website name that you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there're a lot more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for multiple websites even if they are owned by different users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a certain site, providing it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you would like to protect the payment or login information that your website visitors submit, you'll need an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting
In case you host your websites on our cutting-edge cloud platform and you have a website hosting package, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any moment and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only a couple of clicks. The aforementioned option is accessible in all of the data centers where we supply services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice during the registration process, you are able to obtain a dedicated IP for your websites. You will be able to 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 for a number of websites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes just a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a website hosting account previously, you will not encounter any kind of difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP address. Each domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP address in place of the server's shared one and you'll be able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also view all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you're already using it. In case that you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you'll be able to select everything to be installed automatically. Using this feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up the certificate within minutes, so you won't need to do anything on your end except for approving your SSL order through e-mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting
All of our Linux VPS hosting packages come with one dedicated IP address as standard and when you select a website hosting Control Panel (cPanel, Hepsia, DirectAdmin) during the registration process, you will obtain an additional one as well free of charge. You're able to employ them as you see fit - to access online content, to run a web application, 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 would like to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you'll be able to take care of all of the plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will allow you to order additional dedicated IPs in case you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you will be able to use them right away.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting
Due to the fact that you will be able to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all our packages feature three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you need to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you will be able to use the IPs that we supply without charge. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you've registered with us or any place else and then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you own a website hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent provider. If you need more IP addresses than the three the plans provide you with, you'll be able to purchase extra ones in increments of three either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
