If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a unique number that is used to detect a device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name which you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there're many more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for several websites even in case they are owned by separate users. While this does not affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a given website, granting it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you want to secure the payment or login info that your website visitors type in, you need an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
We supply dedicated IPs with all our shared plans regardless of the data center location and you're able to get one or several IPs from your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will show up inside your account and you are able to request, delete or view your IPs with several clicks. You'll be able to choose what number of websites or subdomains will use a given IP as you can assign one with a few clicks to any hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be your main site, which uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer services or goods online and it could have a dedicated IP address combined with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a website 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 websites to use the same dedicated IP as long as there's no SSL set up for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
With only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you can add one or a variety of dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated hosting plan and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will help you see the available IPs and to check the ones which are in use with ease. In case you would like to acquire a new IP for an SSL certificate, you can use the auto-configuration function, that's available in our SSL order wizard. When you activate this feature, you won't need to do anything after you submit your order as our system will request a dedicated IP address, 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. This way, you can secure the info that visitors post on your website even when you do not have any previous experience with such matters.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
Our VPS web hosting plans come with one dedicated IP address by default and in case you obtain a website hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, Hepsia, cPanel) throughout the signup process, you will obtain an extra one too free of cost. You can use them as you decide - to access web content, to run a web application, to install 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 intend to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you'll be able to manage all of the plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will enable you to order more dedicated IPs when you need them for any purpose. A few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them instantly.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
As our dedicated web hosting plans feature three dedicated IP addresses provided in the plans by default, we shall give you a serious advantage in case you would like to run any app that requires this type of an IP. We supply them free of cost and you can use them for as long as you use your server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain name which you host, an SSL certificate for any site on the server, a software server (games, VOIP), and so on. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will get to organize renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you can also purchase more dedicated IP addresses in sets of three whenever you need. They'll be assigned to your server very quickly, so you can start using them for your sites and web-based applications without delay.
