If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that's used to identify a device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name which you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Since there are a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for a variety of sites even in case they are owned by different users. While this does not affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a certain website, granting it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you wish to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors enter, you need an IP alongside the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
If you use any of our shared hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account with ease and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've picked for your account throughout the registration process, therefore you are able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can edit each and every domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through our company, you will be able to use the auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you would like to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
With just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you can add one or multiple dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated service and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will help you find the available IPs and to check those which are in use in no time. In case you want to obtain a new IP for an SSL certificate, you will be able to use the auto-configuration function, which is available in our SSL order wizard. If you enable this option, you will not need to do anything after you post your order because our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, and then set up the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. That way, you'll be able to protect the information that visitors post on your site even if you do not have any previous experience with this type of matters.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Due to the fact that you are able to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our plans feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included by default. If you need to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you're able to use the IPs that we supply without charge. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any website name that you've registered with our company or somewhere else and employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you run a website hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. When you need more IP addresses than the three our plans feature, you can purchase extra ones in increments of three either throughout the registration process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
