When you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - a unique number which is used to identify every device connected to the Internet. The website name which you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there are many more websites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for several sites even in case they belong to different users. While this does not affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a site, providing it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you wish to protect the payment or login information that your site visitors type in, you should have an IP alongside the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you host your websites on our revolutionary cloud platform and you have a cloud web hosting
plan, you can add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This option is accessible in all of the data center facilities where we offer services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so irrespective of your choice throughout the registration process, you're able to get a dedicated IP for your sites. You can add / remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. In case any of the IPs that you obtain will be used for an SSL certificate, you could enable the automatic configuration attribute in our SSL order wizard then our system will request & assign the IP before it sets up the certificate automatically. Our adaptable platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP address for various websites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes no more than a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a web hosting account previously, you won't encounter any difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP address. Each domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP address other than the server's shared one and you'll be able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you can also view all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is accessible or you're already using it. In case that you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you're able to select everything to be installed automatically. Using this feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up your certificate in a couple of minutes, so you shall not need to do anything on your end apart from approving your SSL order through electronic mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting
In case you obtain a virtual private server
from our company, you will receive a dedicated IP address as standard and an additional one if you acquire a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You will be able to use the IPs for any kind of purpose - an Internet site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you're able to use to point to your VPS any domain which you want to host. Additionally, you can add extra dedicated IPs to the VPS account when you need them. This can be done through the billing Control Panel that you will obtain to take care of renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it will take no more than a few clicks. After you send your order, the added IP addresses will be accessible, so you can use them as you see fit.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Because you will be able to run almost anything on a dedicated server
, all our plans feature three dedicated IP addresses included by default. If you wish to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you can use the IPs that we provide you with free of charge. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you have registered through our company or anywhere else and then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you run a web hosting company, for example, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone service provider. When you need more IP addresses than the three our plans feature, you can purchase additional ones in increments of three either during the registration process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
