When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - a unique number which is used to detect a device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name which you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there are far more sites than IPs, shared hosting servers use a single IP for multiple sites even in case they belong to several users. Even though this does not affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a certain site, giving it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you plan to secure the payment or login details that your site visitors submit, you will need an IP alongside the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
With a cloud hosting
account on our cloud platform, you're able to purchase a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks regardless of where your account is - in the USA, the United Kingdom or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains area of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are assigned to. In case you want to use an SSL certificate so as to secure the information of your site visitors and you get it from us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a message board where users can share opinions about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account, adding your new dedicated IP takes only a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a web hosting account before, you won't have any difficulties to acquire and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP address in place of the server's shared one and you're able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you will also see all IPs that your websites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is available or you're already using it. In case that you want an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you will be able to select everything to be set up automatically. Using this feature, our system will change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up the certificate within a matter of minutes, so you won't have to do anything on your end apart from authorizing your SSL order through electronic mail.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
Due to the fact that it's possible to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server
, all our plans feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you need to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you will be able to use the IPs that we provide absolutely free. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you have registered through us or elsewhere and employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you manage a web hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone provider. If you need more IP addresses than the three the plans provide you with, you're able to purchase extra ones in increments of 3 either throughout the registration process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
