When you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - a special number that's used to identify every device connected to the Net. The domain name which you use for the site 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 many more sites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for several sites even in case they belong to different users. Even though this doesn't affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a particular website, providing it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you want to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors enter, you'll need an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
When you use a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to buy a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks wherever your account is - in the United States, the UK or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains part of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're allotted to. In case you wish to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the information of your visitors and you acquire it from us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not need 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 Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes only a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a hosting account before, you won't encounter any difficulties to acquire and assign a dedicated IP address. Each domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP address other than the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you will also view all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is free 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'll be able to select everything to be set up automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up the certificate in a couple of minutes, so you will not need to do anything on your end other than approving your SSL order through email.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
We give a totally free dedicated IP address with each VPS servers that we provide and when you choose a website hosting Control Panel on your VPS order page, you'll receive an extra dedicated IP 100 % free. The addresses can be employed for any type of purpose - a website provided you wish to set up an SSL certificate or a server IP if you need to manage some application such as VOIP software, for instance. You can also use the the dedicated IP addresses to register child name servers for one or more website names that you have and after that you can set them as NS records for any other domain that you'd like to point to your Virtual Server. When you need more dedicated IP addresses, it will take you only a few clicks in your billing Control Panel to obtain them and they will be allotted to your server very quickly.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Because you'll be able to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our plans come with three dedicated IP addresses included by default. If you need to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs that we provide you with for free. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you have registered with us or somewhere else then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you have a website hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent supplier. If you need more IP addresses than the three the packages provide you with, you're able to purchase extra ones in increments of 3 either during the registration process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
