When you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a special number that is used to distinguish any device connected to the World Wide Web. 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 websites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the same IP for a number of websites even if they are owned by separate users. Even though this does not affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a site, giving it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you would like to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors enter, you need an IP alongside the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
If you host your websites on our advanced cloud platform and you have a shared hosting
package, you're able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any moment and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. The aforementioned option is accessible in all the data centers where we supply services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so whatever your choice throughout the registration process, you can obtain a dedicated IP for your sites. You will be able to add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. If any of the IPs that you buy will be used for an SSL certificate, you can activate the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and our system will request and assign the IP before it installs the certificate automatically. Our flexible platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP address for a variety of websites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account, adding a new dedicated IP takes only a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a hosting account before, you will not have any difficulties to acquire and assign a dedicated IP. Every domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP rather than the server's shared one and you are able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you can also see all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. If you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you are able to select everything to be installed automatically. When you use this feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up the certificate within a matter of minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end apart from approving your SSL order through electronic mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting
All VPS hosting services
that we offer come with a dedicated IP address, so you will not share your IP with some other client with an account on the same physical machine. In case you choose a website hosting Control Panel for the server throughout the registration process, you will get an additional dedicated IP too and you can use it for any content that you host on the VPS - a website, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, and the like. In case you would like to have more IP addresses, you are able to order them as a further upgrade through your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server very quickly. You'll be able to take care of your IPs without any difficulty via your web hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel which you will receive to command the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting
As it is possible to run more or less anything on a dedicated server
, all of our packages come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you wish to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you will be able to use the IPs that we provide you with free of charge. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you have registered through us or elsewhere and then use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you own a hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. When you need more IP addresses than the three the packages include, you can get extra ones in increments of 3 either throughout the signup process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
