If you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to detect any device connected to the Internet. The website name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there're a lot more websites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for multiple websites even in case they belong to different users. Even though this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a site, giving it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you plan to secure the payment or login details that your site visitors submit, you need an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting
If you use some of our cloud website hosting packages, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account with ease and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have chosen for the account during the signup process, thus you'll be able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can edit each domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get 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 website where you want to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to add one or several dedicated IP addresses to your Linux semi-dedicated hosting and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will help you see the available IPs and to check the ones that are in use with ease. Provided you wish to get a new IP for an SSL certificate, you're able to use the auto-configuration function, which is available in our SSL order wizard. When you activate this feature, you will not have to do anything after you send in your order as our system will request a dedicated IP address, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, then set up the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. That way, you'll be able to shield the data that visitors upload on your website even if you lack previous experience with this type of matters.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting
Since all our Linux dedicated web hosting offer three dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans as standard, we'll give you a head start in case you want to run any app that requires this kind of an IP. We provide them absolutely free and you can use them for as long as you use your server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain name which you host, an SSL certificate for any website on your server, a software server (games, VOIP), and so on. Through the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain to organize renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you can also order more dedicated IP addresses in groups of three whenever you want. They will be assigned to your server very quickly, so you can start using them for your sites and web-based apps right away.
