When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - a special number which is used to identify any device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there're far more websites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the same IP for a number of websites even if they are owned by several users. Even though this does not affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a particular website, giving it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you wish to secure the payment or login details that your site visitors enter, you will need an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting
When you use a web hosting
account on our cloud platform, you will be able to get a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks no matter where your account is - in the US, Britain or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains area of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're allotted to. When you would like to use an SSL certificate to protect the information of your site visitors and you acquire it from us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion board where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
With just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you can add one or a variety of dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated server
and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will help you see the available IPs and to check those that are in use with ease. If you want to get a new IP for an SSL certificate, you will be able to use the auto-configuration function, that's available in our SSL order wizard. If you enable this feature, you will not 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, then set up the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. In this way, you're able to shield the details that visitors upload on your site even when you do not have any previous experience with such matters.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
In case you purchase a VPS server
from our company, you will receive one dedicated IP address as standard and an additional one in case you acquire a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You're able to use the IPs for any sort of purpose - a site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you can use to point to your VPS any website which you would like to host. You can even add more dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account any time you need them. This can be done via the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain in order to manage renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it will take just a couple of clicks. Shortly after you submit your order, the additional IP addresses will be available, so you're able to use them the way you like.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Because it's possible to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server
, all of our packages come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you want to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you can use the IPs that we supply without charge. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you've registered through our company or anywhere else and then employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you have a website hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as an independent provider. In case you need more IPs than the three the plans feature, you can buy extra ones in increments of 3 either during the signup process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
