When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - a special number that is used to distinguish any device connected to the Internet. 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 address of the server. Considering that there're far more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for many different sites even if they are owned by several users. While this does not affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a certain 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 want to secure the payment or login data that your site visitors type in, you need an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
If you use some of our cloud hosting packages, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've chosen for the account during the signup process, which means that it's possible to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can adjust each and every domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL from our company, you will be able to use the auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you want to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy a semi-dedicated server account through us, you'll get the option to get as many dedicated IP addresses as you would like depending on your business needs. It will take just a few clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to purchase your new IP and a few more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very easy and your site will start opening from your new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will enable you to view all of the IP addresses which you are able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. In case you want to use an SSL certificate on some of your sites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and install the certificate once you upload your order, so you will not have to change anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting
In case you get a virtual private server from our company, you will be given a dedicated IP address by default and another one if you get a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You will be able to use the IPs for any purpose - a 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 that you plan to host. You can also add extra dedicated IPs to the VPS account when you need them. This can be done via the billing Control Panel that you will receive in order to take care of renewals, upgrade purchases and domain name registrations and it takes no more than a couple of clicks. After you submit your order, the added IP addresses will be accessible, so you will be able to use them as you see fit.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All of the dedicated hosting services that we offer include 3 dedicated IP addresses as standard and cost-free. 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 site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your clients may use to point domains to their website hosting accounts, etc. You can also buy extra dedicated IP addresses via the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones which come with your server. You'll be able to get the IPs in sets of three and they will be added to your dedicated server right after you send your order, so you can use them without delays.
