If you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that is used to identify a device connected to the Net. The website name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there are far more websites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the same IP for many different websites even in case they belong to different users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a certain website, providing it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you would like to secure the payment or login data that your website visitors submit, you will need an IP alongside the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
If you host your sites on our up-to-date cloud platform and you have a cloud hosting package, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any moment and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This option is available in all data centers where we provide services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice during the registration process, you're able to get a dedicated IP for your websites. You will be able to add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any moment. In case any of the IPs that you buy will be used for an SSL certificate, you may enable the automatic configuration attribute in our SSL order wizard and our system will request & assign the IP before it installs the certificate automatically. Our flexible platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP address for multiple websites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you'll get the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IP addresses as you need depending on your preferences. It will take a few clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to obtain your new IP plus a couple of more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is really easy and your website will start loading from your new IP address within minutes. Hepsia will enable you to see all IP addresses which you'll be able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. In case you want to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and install the certificate the moment you submit your order, so you do not need to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting
In case you purchase a virtual private server from us, you will receive a dedicated IP address by default and another one if you acquire a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IP addresses for any kind of purpose - an Internet site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you're able to use to point to your VPS any domain which you want to host. Also, you can add more dedicated IPs to the VPS account every time you need them. This can be done through the billing Control Panel that you will receive to take care of renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it takes no more than a few clicks. Soon after you submit your order, the additional IP addresses will be available, so you can use them the way you like.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All Linux dedicated servers hosting that we provide feature 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and for free. You will be able to employ them for any type of purpose based on the content that you've got on your server - a video game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your customers may use to direct domain names to their hosting accounts, and many more. You can also buy additional dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with the plan. You'll be able to purchase the IPs in sets of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server soon after you submit your order, so that you can start using them without any delays.
