When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - a special number that's used to identify any device connected to the Net. The domain name which you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there are a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for multiple sites even if they belong to several users. While this does not affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a particular website, providing it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you plan to protect the payment or login information that your site visitors type in, you'll need an IP alongside the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting
When you use any of our web hosting packages, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have selected for the account throughout the signup process, so it's possible 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, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can edit 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 get the SSL from us, you will be able to use our auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you wish to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
With only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to add one or several dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated server and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will help you view the available IPs and to keep track of those that are in use with ease. Provided you want to obtain a new IP for an SSL certificate, you will be able to use the auto-configuration function, that is available in our SSL order wizard. If you activate this feature, you won't have to do anything after you send in your order since our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, and then install the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without any action on your end. This way, you can protect the data that visitors post on your site even when you lack previous experience with such matters.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All the VPS servers that we provide feature a dedicated IP address, so you won't share your IP with any other client with an account on the very same physical machine. In case you choose a website hosting Control Panel for the server throughout the registration process, you will get a second dedicated IP as well and you'll be able to use it for any content that you host on your VPS - a website, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, and the like. In case you would like to have more IPs, you are able to order them as an additional upgrade using your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server quickly. You can control your IPs without difficulty through your hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel which you will receive to manage the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Because all of our dedicated servers offer 3 dedicated IP addresses provided in the plans by default, we shall give you a head start in case you'd like to run any software which needs this type of an IP. We supply them at no charge and you'll be able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain name which you host, an SSL certificate for any website on your server, a software server (online games, VOIP), etc. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will get to take care of renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you'll also be able to purchase more dedicated IP addresses in sets of three at any time. They will be assigned to your server in no time, so you can start using them for your websites and web-based applications without delay.
