When you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that's used to distinguish a device connected to the Internet. The website name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there are many more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for a variety of websites even if they belong to several users. Even though this doesn't affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a particular website, giving it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you want to secure the payment or login information that your site visitors enter, you'll need an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting
If you host your sites on our outstanding cloud platform and you have a website hosting
package, you can add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only a few clicks. The aforementioned option is available in all data centers where we offer services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice during the registration process, you're able to obtain a dedicated IP for your websites. You can add / remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any moment. If any of the IPs that you acquire will be used for an SSL certificate, you could activate the automatic configuration attribute in our SSL order wizard and our system will request & assign the IP before it sets up your certificate automatically. Our versatile platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP for a number of websites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
With only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you can add one or several dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated plan
and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will allow you to see the available IP addresses and to monitor those which are in use with ease. Provided you wish to acquire a new IP for an SSL certificate, you are able to use the auto-configuration function, that is available in our SSL order wizard. If you enable this option, you won't have to do anything after you post your order since our system will request a dedicated IP address, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, and then set up the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. That way, you can secure the details that visitors post on your site even when you don't have any previous experience with such matters.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
If you acquire a dedicated server
, you probably would like to run a web app or host numerous sites, so we supply three dedicated IPs free of cost with each plan and you'll be able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name which you have registered here or from another company. The aforementioned option is really helpful in case you use your dedicated server to host clients' Internet sites since it'll give you authority and anonymity as a hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add extra IPs as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, so you will be able to go ahead and start using your new dedicated IPs just a few minutes after you send your order.
