If you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that is used to detect any device connected to the Web. The website name that you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there're far more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use a single IP for multiple websites even in case they are owned by separate users. While this doesn't affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a certain website, giving it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you would like to secure the payment or login details that your site visitors type in, you should have an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
We provide you with dedicated IP addresses with all our Linux cloud packages irrespective of the data center location and you are able to purchase one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will appear in your account and you can request, view or delete your IPs with just a few clicks. You'll be able to choose what number of domains or subdomains will use a certain IP as you can assign one with a few clicks to every hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be the main site, that uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer goods or services on the net and it could have a dedicated IP address in addition to an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which a website uses via the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set a few of your websites to use the same dedicated IP given that there is no SSL set up for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you can add one or multiple dedicated IP addresses to your Linux semi-dedicated hosting package and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will help you find the available IPs and to check those which are in use in no time. In case you want to get a new IP for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration function, which is available in our SSL order wizard. If you enable this feature, you will not have to do anything after you send in your order since our system will request a dedicated IP address, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, and then install the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. That way, you can shield the information that visitors post on your site even if you don't have any previous experience with such matters.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS
If you buy a virtual private server from us, you will have one dedicated IP address automatically and a second one if you get a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You will be able to use the IP addresses for any purpose - an Internet site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you can use to point to your VPS any website which you plan to host. Also, you can add more dedicated IPs to the VPS account any time you need them. You can do this via the billing Control Panel that you'll acquire so as to manage renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it will take only a few clicks. After you upload your order, the additional IP addresses will be accessible, so you will be able to use them as you see fit.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
Considering that you're able to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all our plans come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you plan to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs which we supply without charge. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you've registered with us or somewhere else and then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you manage a web hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. If you need more IPs than the three the packages come with, you are able to purchase additional ones in increments of three either throughout the registration process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
