If 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 device connected to the Internet. The domain name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there're far more sites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for multiple websites even in case they are owned by several users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a certain site, providing it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you wish to secure the payment or login details that your site visitors submit, you will need an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
When you use any of our shared website hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've selected for the account throughout the sign-up process, so it is possible to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through our company, you are able to use the auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you wish to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it very simple to buy a dedicated IP and use it for any kind of site that you have in your account regardless if it is under a domain or a subdomain. With only a couple of clicks you'll be able to order the IP and when our system assigns it, you can set it for one or multiple sites through the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel. In the same place you'll also be able to see what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, a list of the dedicated IP addresses as well as if and what site they're assigned to? Provided the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take advantage of our helpful SSL wizard that will make the whole process very simple since it'll request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and then set up the SSL without the need of any action on your side apart from placing the order.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS
All the VPS services that we provide feature a dedicated IP address, so you will not share your IP with any other client with a different account on the same machine. In case you choose a web hosting Control Panel for the server during the registration process, you will get an additional dedicated IP too and you can use it for any content which you host on your VPS - a site, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etcetera. In case you require more IPs, you can order them as an additional upgrade via your billing Control Panel and they will be assigned to your server very quickly. You can control the IPs without any difficulty from your web hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel which you will get to manage the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting
As our dedicated hosting feature three dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans by default, we'll give you a serious advantage if you would like to run any app that requires such an IP. We supply them cost-free and you are 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. Through the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll get to take care of renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you will also be able to obtain more dedicated IPs in sets of three any time. They will be assigned to your server in no time, so that you can start using them for your websites and web-based apps right away.
