When you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - a special number that is used to distinguish every device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Due to the fact that there are far more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for a variety of websites even if they are owned by several users. Even though this doesn't affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a certain website, giving it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you would like to secure the payment or login details that your site visitors submit, you need an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
If you host your websites on our advanced cloud platform and you have a shared website hosting
plan, you are able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any moment and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This option is available in all data centers where we offer services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice during the registration process, you'll be able to acquire a dedicated IP for your websites. You can add / remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. If any of the IPs that you obtain will be used for an SSL certificate, you could enable the automatic configuration attribute in our SSL order wizard then our system will request and assign the IP before it installs the certificate automatically. Our flexible platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP for a variety of websites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that is supplied with our semi-dedicated server
packages, will make it very simple to acquire a dedicated IP and use it for any site that you have in your account no matter if it is under a domain or a subdomain. With just a few clicks you can order the IP and as soon as our system assigns it, you can set it for one or more sites from the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel. In the same location you'll also be able to see what IP is used by each and every domain or subdomain, a long list of the dedicated IP addresses as well as if and what website they are assigned to? In case the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take advantage of our user-friendly SSL wizard that will make the whole process really easy due to the fact that it will request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and after that set up the SSL without any action on your side aside from placing the order.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
Since you're able to run almost anything on a dedicated server
, all our plans come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you plan to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs that we provide for free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you have registered through us or elsewhere and use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you own a website hosting company, for example, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. When you need more IP addresses than the three the packages provide you with, you can buy extra ones in increments of 3 either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
