If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - a unique number that is used to detect every device connected to the Net. The website name that you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Because there're far more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for a number of sites even if they belong to separate users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a particular site, providing it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you wish to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors type in, you'll need an IP alongside the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
When you use a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to get a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks wherever your account is - in the USA, the United Kingdom or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains area 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 sites they're assigned to. When you would like to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the information of your site visitors and you obtain it through our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a message board where users can share opinions about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, will make it really easy to purchase a dedicated IP address and use it for any website that you have in the account regardless if it is under a domain or a subdomain. With just a couple of clicks you're able to order the IP and when our system assigns it, you will be able to set it for one or several websites from the Hosted Domains area 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 long list of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what site they are assigned to? In case the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you can take full advantage of our useful SSL wizard that will make the whole process super easy due to the fact that it will request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and after that install the SSL without any action on your side aside from placing your order.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS
All the Linux VPS packages that we provide feature a dedicated IP, so you won't share the IP with any other customer with a different account on the very same machine. If you select a web hosting Control Panel for the server during the signup process, you will get one more dedicated IP too and you're able to use it for any content that you host on your VPS - an Internet site, an app, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, and the like. If you need more IP addresses, you will be able to order them as an additional upgrade using your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server very quickly. You'll be able to manage the IPs with ease via your web hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel which you will receive to maintain the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
In case you order a dedicated server, you probably would like to run some web app or host a number of sites, so we supply 3 dedicated IPs free of charge with every single plan and you will be able to use them as you see fit - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name which you've registered here or from another company. The last option is very helpful when you use your dedicated server to host customers' Internet sites due to the fact that it'll give you credibility and anonymity as a web hosting service provider. The server billing Control Panel will enable you to add more IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes only a few clicks in the Upgrades section, so you are able to go ahead and use your brand new dedicated IPs several minutes after you submit your order.
