If you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - a special number that is used to distinguish every device connected to the Web. The website name that you use for the website is for quick access 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 websites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for several sites even if they belong to several users. While this doesn't affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a given website, giving it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you wish to protect the payment or login information that your website visitors type in, you will need an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting
When you use some of our website hosting
plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account in no time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've selected for your account during the registration process, therefore you're able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can adjust each domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from us, you'll be able to use our auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you want to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server
account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes just a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a hosting account previously, you will not experience any difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP. Every domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP address rather than the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you will also see all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is accessible or you're already using it. In case that you want an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you are able to select everything to be installed automatically. Using this particular feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install the certificate within minutes, so you will not need to do anything on your end other than authorizing the SSL request through email.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting
All the VPS hosting
that we offer include a dedicated IP, so you won't share the IP with another customer with a different account on the same server. In case you select a web hosting Control Panel for the server during the signup process, you'll receive a second dedicated IP as well and you are able to use it for any content that you host on the VPS - a site, an app, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etc. In case you need more IP addresses, you are able to order them as an extra upgrade through your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server quickly. You can control your IPs without any difficulty through your web hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you'll receive to control the virtual machine.
