If you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - a special number which is used to distinguish any kind of device connected to the Internet. The website name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there're far more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for several websites even if they belong to several users. Even though this does not affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a website, giving it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you plan to secure the payment or login data that your website visitors type in, you need an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
When you use any of our shared website hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account with ease and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have selected for the account during the registration process, which means that you'll be able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can adjust each domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through us, you are able to use the auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you want to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you buy a semi-dedicated server account through us, you will get the opportunity to get as many dedicated IPs as you need depending on your needs. It takes just a few clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to purchase a new IP and several more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is really easy and your website will start opening from the new IP address in minutes. Hepsia will allow you to view all the IP addresses which you can use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. In case you'd like to use an SSL certificate on any of your sites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which can assign a new IP and set up the certificate once you submit your order, so you do not need to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting
All the VPS hosting packages that we provide feature a dedicated IP, so you won't share the IP with another client with an account on the very same machine. In case you select a hosting Control Panel for the server during the registration process, you'll get an extra dedicated IP as well and you'll be able to use it for any content that you host on the VPS - an Internet site, an app, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, and so on. If you would like to have more IP addresses, you're able to order them as a further upgrade from your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server very quickly. You'll be able to manage your IPs with ease via your website hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you will receive to maintain the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting
Considering that you're able to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our packages come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you wish 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 which we provide you with without charge. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you have registered through our company or anywhere else then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you manage a website hosting company, for example, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone service provider. If you need more IPs than the three our plans provide you with, you are able to buy extra ones in increments of 3 either throughout the signup process or through your billing Control Panel at any time.
