When you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - a special number which is used to detect any device connected to the Net. The domain name that you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there're a lot more sites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the same IP for a variety of sites even in case they are owned by different users. Even though this doesn't affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a certain website, granting it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you would like to protect the payment or login info that your site visitors enter, you should have an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
When you use a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform, you can purchase a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks wherever your account is - in the USA, the UK or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains area of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are assigned to. When you would like to use an SSL certificate so as to secure the info of your website 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 may still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion forum where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes no more than a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a website hosting account previously, you will not encounter any difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP. Each domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP as an alternative to the server's shared one and you can make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you can also find all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. If you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you're able to select everything to be set up automatically. With this feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install the certificate in a matter of minutes, so you will not need to do anything on your end except for approving the SSL order via electronic mail.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Due to the fact that you're able to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all of our plans feature three dedicated IP addresses included by default. If you plan to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs that we supply absolutely free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any website name that you've registered through us or any place else then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you manage a website hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. If you need more IP addresses than the three the plans include, you're able to buy additional ones in increments of 3 either throughout the signup process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
