When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - an exclusive number which is used to detect any kind of device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name which you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Because there're a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use a single IP for a number of sites even if they are owned by several users. While this doesn't affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a certain website, giving it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you want to protect the payment or login details that your website visitors submit, you'll need an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
We provide you with dedicated IP addresses with all our Linux shared hosting whatever the data center location and you will be able to acquire one or several IPs from your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will show up inside your account and you are able to request, delete or view your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You will be able to select how many websites or subdomains will use a given IP as you can assign one with a couple of clicks to any hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be the main site, which uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer services or goods on the net and it can have a dedicated IP address in addition to an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP that a site uses from 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 couple of of your sites to use one and the same dedicated IP provided that there's no SSL installed for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it very simple to buy a dedicated IP address and use it for each website that you have in your account no matter if it is under a domain or a subdomain. With only a few clicks you will be able to order the IP and once our system assigns it, you will be able to set it for one or more sites via the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel. In the same location you will also be able to see what IP is used by each and every domain or subdomain, a long list of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what site they are assigned to? If the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take advantage of our user-friendly SSL wizard which will make the entire process very simple since it'll request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and then set up the SSL without any action on your side apart from placing the order.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All of the Linux dedicated servers hosting that we offer include 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and for free. You're able to employ them for any kind of purpose based on 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 customers may use to redirect domain names to their hosting accounts, and much more. You can also get additional dedicated IPs via the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with the server. You'll be able to acquire the IPs in groups of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server right after you submit your order, so you can start using them without any delays.
