When you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - a unique number that's used to identify any device connected to the Net. The website name that you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. As there are a lot more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for a variety of sites even in case they are owned by different users. Even though this does not affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a particular site, providing it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you wish to protect the payment or login information that your site visitors type in, you will need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

When you use any of our cloud hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have selected for the account during the signup process, which means that you're able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can adjust each and every domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL from our company, you can use our auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

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 easy and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a website hosting account previously, you won't experience any kind of difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP. Every 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 in the Hosted Domains section, where you can also see all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is available 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 tool through which you are able to select everything to be installed automatically. With this feature, our system will change the IP address 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 other than approving your SSL request through electronic mail.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

If you acquire a dedicated server, you probably plan to run a web application or host numerous Internet sites, so we provide three dedicated IP addresses at no charge with each plan and you can use them the way you like - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain that you have registered here or through another company. The last option is very helpful when you use your dedicated server to host clients' Internet sites as it will give you trustworthiness and anonymity as a web hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will enable you to add extra IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you're able to go ahead and use your new dedicated IPs several minutes after you send your order.
