Dedicated IP Address
Learn what a dedicated IP address is and the reason why your website will require one at some point.
When you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - an exclusive number which is used to detect a 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 more basic level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Due to the fact that there're a lot more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the same IP for several websites even if they are owned by separate users. Even though this doesn't affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a website, granting it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you want to secure the payment or login data that your site visitors enter, you will need an IP alongside the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Hosting
When you use some of our hosting
plans, you can add a dedicated IP to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've picked for your account throughout the signup process, so 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 e-commerce website, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can adjust each 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 from us, you are able to use our auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you would like to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server
account, adding your new dedicated IP takes just a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a hosting account previously, you won't encounter any difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP address other than the server's shared one and you'll be able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also view all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. If you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you'll be able to select everything to be set up automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up your certificate within a matter of minutes, so you won't have to do anything on your end other than authorizing the SSL order via electronic mail.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All VPS web hosting plans
that we provide feature a dedicated IP, so you will not share the IP with another customer with an account on the very same machine. If you select a web hosting Control Panel for the server during the signup process, you'll receive one more dedicated IP as well and you are able to use it for any content which you host on your VPS - a website, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etcetera. In case you need more IP addresses, you are able to order them as an additional upgrade through your billing Control Panel and they will be assigned to your server very quickly. You will be able to control your IPs with ease through your website hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you'll get to command the virtual machine.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Because all of our dedicated web hosting plans
offer 3 dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans by default, we will give you a serious advantage in case you would like to run any app that requires this kind of an IP. We supply them free of cost and you can use them for as long as you use the server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain which you host, an SSL certificate for any website on the server, a software server (games, VOIP), etc. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will obtain to manage renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you can also purchase more dedicated IP addresses in sets of three at any moment. They will be assigned to your server in a few minutes, so that you can start using them for your websites and web-based applications right away.
