If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - a special number that's used to detect a device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there're far more sites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the same IP for many different websites even if they are owned by separate users. Even though this does not affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a certain site, providing it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you would like to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors enter, you will need an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting
When you use some of our cloud website hosting packages, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've chosen for your account during the registration process, so you will be able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can modify each and every domain or subdomain individually from the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from our company, you are able to use the auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you wish to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel, that is supplied with our semi-dedicated server packages, will make it very easy to purchase a dedicated IP and use it for any website that you have in your account regardless if it is under a domain or a subdomain. With only a couple of clicks you can order the IP and once our system assigns it, you will be able to set it for one or several sites via the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel. In the same place you'll also be able to see what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, a long list of the dedicated IP addresses as well as if and what site they are assigned to? If the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take full advantage of our user-friendly SSL wizard which will make the overall process really easy since it'll request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and after that set up the SSL without any action on your side apart from placing your order.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All the dedicated web hosting plans that we supply have three dedicated IP addresses by default and free of charge. You're able to employ them for any kind of purpose according to the content that you've got on the server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your customers may use to point domains to their website hosting accounts, etceterra. What's more, you can purchase more dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with your server. You're able to purchase the IPs in sets of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server soon after you submit your order, which means that you can start using them without any delays.
