When you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - a special number that is used to detect a device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. As there are many more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for multiple sites even in case they belong to different users. While this doesn't affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a particular site, providing it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you wish to secure the payment or login data that your site visitors enter, you need an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting
When you use a cloud web hosting account on our cloud platform, you can buy a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks wherever your account is - in the United States, Great Britain or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains area of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are assigned to. If you would like to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the information of your website visitors and you obtain it from us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not 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 - a discussion board where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it really easy to get a dedicated IP address and use it for each website that you have in your account irrespective of whether it's under a domain or a subdomain. With only a couple of clicks you'll be able to order the IP and when our system assigns it, you'll be able to set it for one or several 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 and every domain or subdomain, a long list of the dedicated IP addresses as well as if and what site they're assigned to? Provided the IP you will need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take full advantage of our helpful SSL wizard that will make the entire process very easy as it'll request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and then install the SSL without the need of any action on your side other than placing your order.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
In case you buy a VPS server from us, you'll have one dedicated IP address as standard and an extra one when you get a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You'll be able to use the IPs for any kind of purpose - a website, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you can use to point to your VPS any domain name which you want to host. You can even add extra dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account every time you need them. You can do this via the billing Control Panel that you will receive to take care of renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it takes only a few clicks. Soon after you send your order, the additional IP addresses will be available, so you're able to use them the way you like.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Since all our dedicated servers feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included in the plans as standard, we will give you a serious advantage if you'd like to run any app that requires such an IP. We supply them at no charge and you will be able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain which you host, an SSL certificate for any site on your server, a software server (online games, VOIP), and so on. From the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will obtain to organize renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you can also purchase more dedicated IP addresses in sets of three whenever you need. They will be assigned to your server within a few minutes, so you can start using them for your sites and web-based applications right away.
