If you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - a special number that's used to identify any kind of device connected to the Net. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there're far more sites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for many different websites even if they are owned by several users. While this does not affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a particular site, granting it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you would like to secure the payment or login info that your website visitors enter, you need an IP alongside the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
We offer dedicated IPs with all our shared website hosting plans irrespective of the data center location and you'll be able to purchase one or several IPs from your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will show up inside your account and you're able to request, delete or view your IPs with several clicks. You will be able to select how many websites or subdomains will use a certain IP as you can assign one with a few clicks to any hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be the main website, which uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer goods or services on the internet and it can have a dedicated IP address along with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP that a website uses through the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set a few of your websites to use a single dedicated IP given that there is no SSL activated for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, will make it really easy to purchase 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 only a couple of clicks you will be able to order the IP and when 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 IP addresses as well as if and what site they are assigned to? In case the IP you will need is for an SSL certificate, you can take full advantage of our useful SSL wizard which 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 aside from placing the order.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated web hosting plans that we provide have three dedicated IP addresses as standard and absolutely free. You're able to use them for any kind of purpose depending on the content that you've got on the server - a video 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 redirect domains to their web hosting accounts, and many other things. What's more, you can buy additional dedicated IPs from the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones which come with the plan. You are able to purchase 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 delays.
