If you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - a special number which is used to detect a device connected to the Web. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Due to the fact that there are a lot more sites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for multiple websites even if they belong to several users. While this does not affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a given website, providing it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you would like to protect the payment or login information that your website visitors submit, you should have an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting
In case you host your websites on our advanced cloud platform and you have a shared hosting plan, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. The aforementioned option is accessible in all of the data centers where we offer services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so whatever your choice throughout the registration process, you'll be able to get a dedicated IP for your sites. You will be able to add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. If any of the IPs that you purchase will be used for an SSL certificate, you could activate the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard then our system will request & assign the IP before it installs your certificate automatically. Our versatile platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP address for a variety of sites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it very simple to acquire a dedicated IP and use it for any site that you have in your account irrespective of whether it is under a domain or a subdomain. With only a couple of clicks you will be able to order the IP and as soon as our system assigns it, you'll be able to set it for one or multiple websites from the Hosted Domains part 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 long list of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what site they are assigned to? In case the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to take full advantage of our helpful SSL wizard which will make the whole process super easy since it'll request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and after that set up the SSL without any action on your side apart from placing your order.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All of the dedicated web hosting plans that we provide come with 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and free of charge. You'll be able to use them for any purpose according to the content that you've got on the server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients can use to direct domain names to their web hosting accounts, and much more. You will also be able to obtain more dedicated IPs from the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones which come with the plan. You're able to get the IPs in sets of three and they will be added to your dedicated server shortly after you submit your order, so you can use them without any delays.
