If you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - a special number which is used to identify every device connected to the Net. The website name which you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there are many more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for a variety of sites even if they belong to separate users. While this does not affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a particular website, granting it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you would like to secure the payment or login details that your website visitors type in, you will need an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
We provide you with dedicated IP addresses with all of our Linux shared website hosting packages irrespective of the data center location and you are able to purchase one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will show up as part of your account and you'll be able to request, view or delete your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You'll be able to choose what number of websites or subdomains will use a certain 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 a subdomain where you offer services or goods on the internet and it could have a dedicated IP address together with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which 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 some of your sites to use a single dedicated IP given that there's no SSL set up for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to add one or several dedicated IP addresses to your Linux semi-dedicated package and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will help you see the available IP addresses and to keep track of the ones which are in use in no time. Provided you want to obtain a new IP for an SSL certificate, you can use the auto-configuration function, that is available in our SSL order wizard. When you activate this option, you will not need to do anything after you submit your order because our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, and then add the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. That way, you are able to protect the data that visitors submit on your website even when you do not have any previous experience with this kind of matters.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting
If you acquire a virtual private server from us, you will receive a dedicated IP address as standard and another one in case you obtain a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You'll be able to use the IP addresses for any purpose - a site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you'll be able to use to point to your VPS any domain name which you wish to host. You can also add more dedicated IPs to the VPS account any time you need them. You can do this from the billing Control Panel that you will receive to manage renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations and it will take no more than a couple of clicks. Shortly after you submit your order, the extra IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you're able to use them the way you like.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Since all our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages feature three dedicated IP addresses included in the plans as standard, we will give you a head start in case you'd like to run any application which requires such an IP. We provide them free of charge and you can use them for as long as you use your server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain that you host, an SSL certificate for any website on the server, a software server (games, VOIP), and so on. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will receive to manage renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you can also get more dedicated IP addresses in sets of three whenever you want. They will be assigned to your server very quickly, so that you can start using them for your websites and web-based applications right away.
