When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - a unique number that is used to identify any device connected to the Web. 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 Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there are many more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for several sites even in case they are owned by different users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a site, providing it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you wish to protect the payment or login info that your site visitors enter, you need an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
If you use any of our shared hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account with ease and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have chosen for the account throughout the signup process, which means that you'll be able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can adjust each domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from us, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you would like to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it very easy to acquire a dedicated IP and use it for any website that you have in your account regardless if it is under a domain or a subdomain. With only a few clicks you'll be able to order the IP and as soon as our system assigns it, you can set it for one or multiple websites through the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel. In the same location you will also be able to find what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, a list of the dedicated IP addresses as well as if and what website they're assigned to? In case the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to take full advantage of our useful SSL wizard that will make the overall process very simple due to the fact that it will request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and after that set up the SSL without the need of any action on your side apart from placing your order.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS
All the Linux VPS that we offer feature a dedicated IP address, so you won't share your IP with any other customer with some other account on the same server. In case you choose a web hosting Control Panel for the server during the registration process, you'll get an additional dedicated IP as well and you can use it for any content which you host on your VPS - a site, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etcetera. If you require more IP addresses, you're able to order them as an extra upgrade from your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server very quickly. You can control your IPs without difficulty through your website hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you will get to manage the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
If you get a dedicated server, you probably want to run some web application or host a number of websites, so we supply three dedicated IPs without charge with each plan and you'll be able to use them as you see fit - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name which you have registered here or via another company. The last mentioned option is very helpful in case you use your dedicated server to host customers' Internet sites considering that it will give you credibility and anonymity as a web hosting company. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add more IPs as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes just a few clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you're able to go ahead and use your new dedicated IP addresses a few minutes after you send your order.
