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 distinguish every device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there are far more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the same IP for a number of websites even if they are owned by different users. While this doesn't affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a site, giving it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you wish to protect the payment or login details that your website visitors type in, you should have an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
When you use some of our shared hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account in no time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have selected for your account throughout the signup process, therefore it is possible to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can adjust each domain or subdomain individually from the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from our company, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you wish to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which is supplied with our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it very easy to get a dedicated IP address and use it for any website that you have in your account irrespective of whether it is under a domain or a subdomain. With only a couple of clicks you will be able to order the IP and as soon as our system assigns it, you will be able to set it for one or more websites through the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel. In the same location you'll also be able to find what IP is used by each and every domain or subdomain, a list of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what website they're assigned to? In case the IP you will need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take advantage of our user-friendly SSL wizard which will make the entire process very simple since it'll request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and after that install the SSL without the need of any action on your side aside from placing the order.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
As all our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages offer three dedicated IP addresses provided in the plans by default, we will give you a head start in case you would like to run any application which needs this type of an IP. We provide them cost-free and you'll be able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain that you host, an SSL certificate for any site on the server, a software server (games, VOIP), and so on. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will receive to manage renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you can also get more dedicated IPs in sets of three at any moment. They'll be assigned to your server in no time, so that you can start using them for your sites and web-based applications right away.
