When you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - an exclusive number which is used to detect any kind of device connected to the Net. The domain name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there're many more sites than IPs, shared hosting servers use a single IP for a number of sites even in case they are owned by separate users. Even though this does not affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a site, giving it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you want to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors enter, you should have an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
When you use a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to buy a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks no matter where your account is - in the USA, the United Kingdom or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains section of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're assigned to. If you wish to use an SSL certificate so as to protect the information of your site visitors and you acquire it through us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't be required to anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion forum where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, will make it really easy to purchase a dedicated IP address and use it for any kind of website that you have in your account regardless if it's under a domain or a subdomain. With just a few clicks you can order the IP and as soon as our system assigns it, you'll be able to set it for one or multiple websites from the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel. In the same location you'll also be able to view what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, a list of the dedicated IP addresses as well as if and what site they're assigned to? In case the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to take full advantage of our helpful SSL wizard which will make the overall process very easy because 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 the order.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS
All the VPS that we supply include a dedicated IP address, so you will not share the IP with another client with some other account on the same server. If you choose a hosting Control Panel for the server throughout the registration process, you will get one more dedicated IP as well and you are able to use it for any content that you host on the VPS - an Internet site, an app, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etc. In case you require more IP addresses, you'll be able to order them as a further upgrade through your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server very quickly. You will be able to manage your IPs without any difficulty from your web hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel which you will receive to command the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
All of the dedicated hosting that we offer come with three dedicated IP addresses by default and free of charge. You can employ them for any kind of purpose according to the content that you have on your server - a video game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your customers can use to direct domains to their website hosting accounts, and many other things. You can also buy additional dedicated IPs 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 buy the IPs in groups of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server shortly after you submit your order, which means that you can start using them without any delays.
