If you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - a special number which is used to detect a device connected to the Net. 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 web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Due to the fact that there are many more websites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for a variety of websites even in case they belong to different users. Even though this doesn't affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a particular website, giving it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you wish to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors submit, you will need an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting

If you use some of our website hosting packages, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account in no time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've chosen for the account during the registration process, thus it is possible to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can adjust each and every domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through 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'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to add one or multiple dedicated IP addresses to your Linux semi-dedicated hosting and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will help you find the available IPs and to keep track of those which are in use in no time. In case you would like to obtain a new IP for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration function, that's available in our SSL order wizard. When you activate this option, you will not need to do anything after you submit your order since our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, and then add the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without any action on your end. In this way, you are able to protect the info that visitors submit on your site even when you don't have any previous experience with this kind of matters.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting

As all our Linux dedicated web hosting feature three dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans by default, we'll give you a serious advantage in case you wish to run any app which requires such an IP. We supply them cost-free and you will be able to 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 site on the server, a software server (games, VOIP), etc. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll receive to control renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you'll also be able to order more dedicated IPs in groups of three at any moment. They will be assigned to your server in no time, so you can start using them for your sites and web-based applications without delay.
