When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - a unique number which is used to detect any device connected to the Internet. The domain name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there are far more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for several websites even in case they are owned by several users. Even though this doesn't affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a given website, giving it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you wish to secure the payment or login data that your website visitors enter, you need an IP alongside the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting
When you use a web hosting account on our cloud platform, you can buy a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks wherever your account is - in the US, Britain or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains section of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're allotted to. In case you want to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the information of your website visitors and you obtain it from our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a message board where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, will make it really easy to buy a dedicated IP address and use it for each site that you have in the account irrespective of whether it is under a domain or a subdomain. With only a few clicks you're able to order the IP and once our system assigns it, you can set it for one or more sites through the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel. In the same location you will also be able to see what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, a list of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what site they are assigned to? Provided the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to take advantage of our user-friendly SSL wizard that will make the entire process very easy due to the fact that it will request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and then set up the SSL without any action on your side apart from placing the order.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All VPS servers that we supply feature a dedicated IP, so you will not share your IP with another client with some other account on the same physical machine. If you select a website hosting Control Panel for the server throughout the signup process, you'll receive one more dedicated IP too and you can use it for any content which you host on your VPS - a site, an app, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etcetera. In case you need more IPs, you're able to order them as an additional upgrade through your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server within a matter of minutes. You can control the IPs without any difficulty via your web hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you'll obtain to take care of the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Because all our dedicated service come with three dedicated IP addresses included in the plans by default, we will give you a head start if you'd like to run any software that needs this type of an IP. We provide them at no charge and you're able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain name which you host, an SSL certificate for any site on the server, a software server (online games, VOIP), etcetera. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will obtain to control renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you will also be able to obtain more dedicated IP addresses in sets of three whenever you need. They'll be assigned to your server within a few minutes, so you can start using them for your websites and web-based apps without delay.
