When you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that's used to identify any kind of device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name that you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. As there are many more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for many different websites even in case they belong to several users. Even though this doesn't affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a certain website, granting it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to secure the payment or login info that your site visitors enter, you will need an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting
With a cloud website hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to get a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks no matter where your account is - in the US, the UK or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains area of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are allotted to. When you wish to use an SSL certificate in order to protect the info of your visitors and you get it from us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not have to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion board where users can share opinions about your services, for example.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our semi-dedicated server packages, will make it very easy to get a dedicated IP address and use it for any kind of site that you have in the account no matter if it is under a domain or a subdomain. With just a few clicks you are able to order the IP and as soon as our system assigns it, you'll be able to set it for one or more sites from the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel. In the same place you'll also be able to view what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, a list of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what website they're assigned to? Provided the IP you need is for an SSL certificate, you can take advantage of our user-friendly SSL wizard that will make the entire process very simple because it'll request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and then install the SSL without any action on your side aside from placing your order.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All of the dedicated servers that we provide include 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and cost-free. You will be able to use them for any type of purpose according to the content that you have on the server - an online game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients can use to direct domains to their web hosting accounts, and many more. You can also get extra dedicated IPs from the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with the plan. You're able to buy the IPs in sets of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server right after you send your order, so that you can use them without any delays.
