When you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - an exclusive number which is used to identify any kind of device connected to the Net. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there are many more sites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for several sites even if they belong to several users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a site, giving it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you want to secure the payment or login details that your site visitors type in, you need an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting
With a shared web hosting account on our cloud platform, you'll be able to obtain a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the USA, Britain or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains section of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're allotted to. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate so as to secure the information of your website visitors and you get it through our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't need to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion forum where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes just a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a website hosting account previously, you will not encounter any difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP address. Every domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP as an alternative to the server's shared one and you can make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you will also find all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. In case that you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you are able to select everything to be set up automatically. With this particular feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up your certificate within minutes, so you shall not have to do anything on your end except for authorizing the SSL request through e-mail.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
Because you are able to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our plans feature three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you plan to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs that we supply free of charge. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you've registered through our company or anywhere else then use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you own a website hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone service provider. If you need more IP addresses than the three the plans provide you with, you are able to buy additional ones in increments of 3 either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
