When you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - a special number which is used to detect every device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name that you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there are many more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for a variety of websites even if they belong to several users. While this doesn't affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a certain site, granting it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you would like to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors enter, you need an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
We provide dedicated IPs with all of our Linux cloud hosting plans regardless of the data center location and you can acquire one or several IPs via your Hepsia Control Panel. A fresh section will appear as part of your account and you'll be able to request, delete or view your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You will be able to decide what number of websites or subdomains will use a particular IP as 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 a subdomain where you offer goods or services online and it can have a dedicated IP address in addition to an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP that a domain uses through the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set a couple of of your sites to use one and the same dedicated IP provided that there's no SSL set up for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you will have the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IPs as you like depending on your needs. It will take just a few clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to buy your new IP plus a few more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is very simple and your website will start opening from your new IP address in no time. Hepsia will enable you to view all the IP addresses which you are able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. If you'd like to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and install the certificate once you send your order, so you don't need to customize anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account manually.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All VPS hosting plans that we supply come with a dedicated IP, so you won't share your IP with any other customer with an account on the same server. In case you select a website hosting Control Panel for the server throughout the registration process, you will receive a second dedicated IP as well and you are able to use it for any content which you host on the VPS - a site, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etc. If you would like to have more IP addresses, you will be able to order them as an additional upgrade using your billing Control Panel and they will be assigned to your server quickly. You'll be able to manage your IPs with ease via your website hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you'll get to take care of the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
In case you acquire a dedicated server, you probably would like to run some web app or host numerous websites, so we supply three dedicated IP addresses 100 % free with each and every plan and you are able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name that you've registered here or via another company. The aforementioned option is very useful in case you use your dedicated server to host clients' Internet sites due to the fact that it will give you authority and anonymity as a hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will enable you to add additional IPs as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you will be able to go ahead and use your brand new dedicated IPs several minutes after you send your order.
