When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number which is used to identify any device connected to the Internet. The domain name which you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Because there are many more sites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for a variety of websites even in case they belong to several users. Even though this does not affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a certain website, granting it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you would like to protect the payment or login information that your site visitors submit, you will need an IP alongside the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Hosting
If you host your sites on our cutting-edge cloud platform and you have a hosting plan, you can add a dedicated IP to your account at any moment and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only a couple of clicks. The aforementioned option is accessible in all the data center facilities where we offer services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so whatever your choice throughout the registration process, you can acquire a dedicated IP for your websites. You'll be able to 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 obtain will be used for an SSL certificate, you could activate the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard then our system will request and assign the IP before it installs the certificate automatically. Our adaptable platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP address for various sites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our semi-dedicated server packages, will make it very easy to buy a dedicated IP address and use it for any kind of site that you have in your account no matter if it's under a domain or a subdomain. With just a couple of clicks you are able to order the IP and as soon as our system assigns it, you'll be able to set it for one or more sites from the Hosted Domains part of the Control Panel. In the same place you can also 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? In case the IP you need is for an SSL certificate, you can take advantage of our helpful SSL wizard that will make the overall process very easy because it will request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and after that install the SSL without any action on your side apart from placing your order.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
In case you purchase a VPS server from us, you'll have a dedicated IP address automatically and an extra one when you get a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You're able to use the IPs for any kind of purpose - a website, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you are able to use to point to your VPS any domain name that you intend to host. You can even add extra dedicated IPs to your VPS account every time you need them. You can do this via the billing Control Panel that you will acquire in order to manage renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it will take only a few clicks. Soon after you upload your order, the added IP addresses will be available, so you will be able to use them the way you like.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Since it is possible to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all of our packages come with three dedicated IP addresses included by default. If you want to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs which we supply for free. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any website name that you've registered with us or elsewhere then employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you own a hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone service provider. When you need more IPs than the three our packages include, you'll be able to get additional ones in increments of 3 either throughout the registration process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
