When you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - a special number that's used to detect every device connected to the Net. The domain name which you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there are far more sites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for a variety of websites even if they belong to different users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a given site, granting it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you want to protect the payment or login details that your website visitors enter, you need an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting
In case you host your sites on our up-to-date cloud platform and you have a shared web hosting plan, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only a few clicks. The aforementioned option is accessible in all of the data center facilities where we provide services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so irrespective of your choice during the registration process, you'll be able to obtain a dedicated IP for your sites. You can add / remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any moment. If any of the IPs that you acquire will be used for an SSL certificate, you can activate the automatic configuration attribute in our SSL order wizard and then our system will request and assign the IP before it sets up the certificate automatically. Our versatile platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP address for a number of sites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
With just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to add one or several dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated server and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will allow you to find the available IPs and to keep track of the ones that are in use with ease. In case you would like to get a new IP for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration function, that's available in our SSL order wizard. When you activate this feature, you will not have to do anything after you send in your order because our system will request a dedicated IP address, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, then set up the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. That way, you can secure the information that visitors post on your site even if you don't have any previous experience with this type of matters.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers include one dedicated IP by default and if you order a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin) throughout the signup process, you will get an extra one too completely free. You're able to employ them as you see fit - to access website content, to run a web app, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website which you have and use the latter for any other website that you would like to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you can manage all the plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain registrations will allow you to order additional dedicated IP addresses 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 right away.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
In case you purchase a dedicated server, you probably want to run a web app or host a lot of sites, so we supply three dedicated IPs at no charge with each and every plan and you're able to use them the way you like - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain which you've registered here or through another company. The last mentioned option is really helpful when you use the dedicated server to host users' sites because it'll give you credibility and anonymity as a website hosting company. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add extra IP addresses as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you will be able to go ahead and use your new dedicated IP addresses just a few minutes after you send your order.
