If you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to identify any kind of device connected to the Internet. The domain name that you use for the website 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. Because there are far more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for a variety of websites even if they are owned by several users. Even though this does not affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a certain website, providing it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you wish to secure the payment or login data that your website visitors submit, you will need an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting
We supply dedicated IP addresses with all of our Linux cloud web hosting packages irrespective of the data center location and you're able to purchase one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. A fresh section will appear in your account and you will be able to request, delete or view your IPs with several clicks. You are able to decide how many websites or subdomains will use a given IP since you can assign one with a few clicks to every hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be the main site, that uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer goods or services online and it could have a dedicated IP address along with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP that a domain uses via the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set a couple of of your websites to use a single dedicated IP given that there's no SSL activated for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server account from us, you'll have the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IP addresses as you would like depending on your preferences. It takes just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to get your new IP and a few more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very easy and your site will start opening from your new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will allow you to see all of the IPs that you will be able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. Provided you want to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and set up the certificate as soon as you send your order, so you will not have to customize anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting
In case you acquire a virtual private server from our company, you will receive a dedicated IP address automatically and an extra one in case you obtain a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You will be able to use the IPs for any sort of purpose - an Internet site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you can use to point to your VPS any website that you want to host. Also, you can add extra dedicated IPs to the VPS account every time you need them. This can be done via the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain so as to control renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations and it takes only a couple of clicks. Shortly after you post your order, the additional IP addresses will be accessible, so you're able to use them the way you like.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting
Due to the fact that you are able to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all of our plans come with three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you wish to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs which we provide you with for free. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you have registered with us or elsewhere and then employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you manage a web hosting company, for example, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. When you need more IPs than the three our plans provide you with, you can get additional ones in increments of 3 either during the signup process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
