When you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to identify a device connected to the Internet. The website name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there are a lot more sites than IPs, shared hosting servers use a single IP for a number of websites even in case they belong to separate users. Even though this doesn't affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a given website, providing it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you wish to secure the payment or login data that your site visitors submit, you'll need an IP alongside the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
We offer dedicated IP addresses with all of our Linux shared website hosting whatever the data center location and you will be able to obtain one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will show up in your account and you're able to request, delete or view your IPs with several clicks. You will be able to choose how many domains or subdomains will use a particular IP as you can assign one with a couple of clicks to every hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be your main site, which uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer services or goods online and it could have a dedicated IP address along with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a site uses through the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set a few of your websites to use the same dedicated IP as long as there is no SSL activated for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
With just a couple of 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 websites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will help you see the available IPs and to monitor the ones that are in use with ease. In case you would like to get a new IP for an SSL certificate, you can use the auto-configuration function, which is available in our SSL order wizard. When you enable this feature, you will not have to do anything after you post your order as our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, and then set up the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without any action on your end. This way, you are able to protect the details that visitors post on your website even if you lack previous experience with such matters.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS
If you get a virtual private server from our company, you'll get one dedicated IP address by default and an additional one in case you obtain a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You will be able to use the IP addresses for any kind of purpose - an Internet site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you can use to point to your VPS any website that you would like to host. Additionally, you can add more dedicated IPs to your VPS account if you need them. This can be done through the billing Control Panel that you will acquire to manage renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations and it will take just a few clicks. Soon after you upload your order, the additional IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you can use them the way you like.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
All Linux dedicated hosting that we provide include 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and free of charge. You will be able to employ them for any purpose depending on the content that you've got on your server - a 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 point domains to their website hosting accounts, and much more. What's more, you can acquire additional dedicated IP addresses via the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with the server. You are able to purchase the IPs in sets of three and they will be added to your dedicated server soon after you send your order, so that you can start using them with no delays.
