When you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a special number that is used to identify any device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Because there are many more sites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for a variety of websites even if they are owned by several users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a particular site, providing it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you plan to protect the payment or login information that your site visitors type in, you should have an IP alongside the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting
We provide you with dedicated IP addresses with all our cloud website hosting plans regardless of the data center location and you will be able to obtain one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. A fresh section will show up in your account and you will be able to request, delete or view your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You can select what number of domains or subdomains will use a particular IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to any hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be the main site, which uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer services or goods on the net and it can have a dedicated IP address in addition to an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which a site uses via the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set some 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 Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you will have the opportunity to obtain as many dedicated IP addresses as you would like depending on your needs. It takes just a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to buy a new IP plus several more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is very easy and your website will start loading from your new IP address within minutes. Hepsia will allow you to view all IPs which you are able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. Provided you'd like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which will assign a new IP and install the certificate the moment you submit your order, so you will not need to customize anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account manually.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Since it is possible to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all of our plans come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included by default. If you would like to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs that we provide free of charge. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you've registered with us or elsewhere and employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you have a web hosting company, for example, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. If you need more IP addresses than the three our packages include, you're able to purchase extra ones in increments of three either during the registration process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
