If you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - a special number which is used to distinguish every device connected to the World Wide 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. Because there are many more sites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for multiple websites even if they are owned by different users. Even though this does not affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a particular website, granting it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you plan to secure the payment or login details that your website visitors enter, you'll need an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
We provide dedicated IPs with all of our Linux cloud packages whatever the data center location and you'll be able to purchase one or several IPs from your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will appear as part of your account and you will be able to request, view or delete your IPs with several clicks. You can select how many domains or subdomains will use a certain IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to any hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be the main site, which uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer services or goods on the internet and it can have a dedicated IP address in addition to an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP that a site uses through the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set some of your sites to use a single dedicated IP as long as there is no SSL installed for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to add one or a variety of dedicated IP addresses to your Linux semi-dedicated package and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will help you view the available IP addresses and to keep track of the ones that are in use in no time. In case you would like to get a new IP for an SSL certificate, you will be able to use the auto-configuration function, that's available in our SSL order wizard. If you activate this feature, you won't need to do anything after you send in your order as our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, then add the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without any action on your end. That way, you're able to protect the details that visitors post on your site even if you don't have any previous experience with such matters.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS
Our Linux VPS packages come with one dedicated IP address as standard and if you get a website hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, cPanel, Hepsia) throughout the registration process, you will get an extra one as well without charge. You are able to use them the way you like - to access website content, to manage a web application, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain which you have and use the latter for any other domain that you intend to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you are able to manage all of the plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will enable you to order additional dedicated IPs when you need them for any purpose. Just a couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them immediately.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
As all of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages offer 3 dedicated IP addresses included in the plans as standard, we will give you a head start in case you'd like to run any application which requires this type of an IP. We provide them absolutely free and you'll be able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain which you host, an SSL certificate for any site on the server, a software server (games, VOIP), etcetera. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will obtain to control renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you'll also be able to purchase more dedicated IPs in groups of three whenever you need. They will be assigned to your server in a few minutes, so you can start using them for your websites and web-based apps right away.
