If you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - a unique number which is used to distinguish every device connected to the Internet. The website name that you use for the website is for easy 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're a lot more sites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the same IP for many different sites even if they belong to several users. While this does not affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a given site, giving it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you plan to secure the payment or login information that your site visitors submit, you will need an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
When you use a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you'll be able to acquire a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks wherever your account is - in the United States, Britain or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains section of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're assigned to. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the information of your visitors and you get it through our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a message board where users can share opinions about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which is supplied with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it very easy to obtain a dedicated IP address and use it for each site that you have in your account regardless if it's under a domain or a subdomain. With only a few clicks you will be able to order the IP and as soon as our system assigns it, you will be able to set it for one or more websites from the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel. In the same place you can also see what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, a long list of the dedicated IP addresses as well as if and what website they're assigned to? In case the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take full advantage of our helpful SSL wizard which will make the entire process super easy because it will request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and then install the SSL without any action on your side apart from placing your order.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS
All Linux VPS that we provide include a dedicated IP, so you will not share the IP with another customer with another account on the very same machine. In case you select a hosting Control Panel for the server during the signup process, you will receive an additional dedicated IP too and you can use it for any content which you host on your VPS - an Internet site, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etc. If you need more IPs, you can order them as a further upgrade from your billing Control Panel and they will be assigned to your server within a matter of minutes. You will be able to take care of the IPs without difficulty through your hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you will obtain to take care of the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
Since our Linux dedicated hosting feature 3 dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans by default, we will give you a serious advantage if you want to run any application that needs this kind of an IP. We provide them for free and you are able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain that you host, an SSL certificate for any site on your server, a software server (online games, VOIP), etcetera. Through the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain to control renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you'll also be able to acquire more dedicated IPs in groups of three at any moment. They will be assigned to your server in minutes, so that you can start using them for your sites and web-based apps right away.
