If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that's used to identify any device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there're a lot more websites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for multiple sites even if they belong to separate users. Even though this does not affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a given website, providing it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to secure the payment or login details that your site visitors submit, you'll need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

When you use some of our shared web hosting packages, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have selected for the account throughout the registration process, so you're 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 instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can modify each and every domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through our company, you are able to use our auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you would like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes no more than a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a hosting account before, you won't have any difficulties to acquire and assign a dedicated IP address. Every domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP other than the server's shared one and you're able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you can also see all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is available or you're already using it. In case that you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you are able to select everything to be installed automatically. With this particular feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up the certificate in a matter of minutes, so you will not need to do anything on your end except for authorizing your SSL request via electronic mail.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting

All of the Linux VPS web hosting packages that we provide feature a dedicated IP, so you won't share the IP with another customer with another account on the same server. In case you select a web hosting Control Panel for the server throughout the signup process, you will receive an additional dedicated IP as well and you'll be able to use it for any content which you host on the VPS - a site, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, and so on. In case you require more IP addresses, you can order them as an extra upgrade using your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server quickly. You will be able to take care of the IPs without difficulty via your website hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you'll receive to command the virtual machine.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Since you're able to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our packages come with three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you need to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs which we supply without charge. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you've registered through us or somewhere else and then employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you run a web hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone provider. If you need more IP addresses than the three the plans include, you'll be able to purchase additional ones in increments of three either throughout the registration process or through your billing Control Panel at any time.
