When you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - a special number that is used to distinguish any device connected to the Internet. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Since there're far more websites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for many different websites even if they are owned by different users. While this doesn't affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a given website, granting it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you plan to protect the payment or login details that your website visitors submit, you will need an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Hosting
When you use some of our hosting packages, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without any difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have selected for your account throughout the sign-up process, which means that you're able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can modify each and every domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL through our company, you'll be able to use our auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you would like to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you buy a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll get the opportunity to obtain as many dedicated IP addresses as you would like depending on your business needs. It takes a few clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to get a new IP and a few more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is really easy and your site will start loading from the new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will allow you to see all of the IP addresses which you'll be able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. In case you want to use an SSL certificate on any of your sites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you upload your order, so you don't have to modify anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account manually.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All the VPS servers that we supply feature a dedicated IP address, so you won't share the IP with some other client with a different account on the very same machine. In case you select a website hosting Control Panel for the server throughout the signup process, you will get a second dedicated IP too and you're able to use it for any content that you host on the VPS - a site, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, and so on. If you need more IP addresses, you are able to order them as a further upgrade from your billing Control Panel and they will be assigned to your server very quickly. You can manage the IPs without any difficulty from your web hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel which you'll get to command the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All dedicated servers that we offer have three dedicated IP addresses by default and free of charge. You'll be able to employ them for any purpose according to the content that you have on the server - an online game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your clients may use to direct domains to their hosting accounts, and many more. What's more, you can obtain extra dedicated IP addresses via the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with the plan. You can purchase the IPs in groups of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server soon after you submit your order, so that you can start using them with no delays.
