When you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that is used to detect any kind of device connected to the Web. The domain name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there're far more sites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for multiple websites even in case they belong to different users. Even though this doesn't affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a site, granting it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you plan to protect the payment or login information that your site visitors type in, you should have an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting

With a cloud website hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to buy a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the USA, the United Kingdom or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains area of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're allotted to. If you want to use an SSL certificate so as to protect the info of your visitors and you obtain it through us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not need to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion forum where users can share opinions about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it very easy to get a dedicated IP address and use it for any site that you have in the account irrespective of whether it's under a domain or a subdomain. With just a few clicks you're able to order the IP and once our system assigns it, you can set it for one or more websites through the Hosted Domains part of the Control Panel. In the same place you will also be able to view what IP is used by each and every domain or subdomain, a list of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what site they're assigned to? In case the IP you need is for an SSL certificate, you can take advantage of our useful SSL wizard which will make the entire process very simple since it'll request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and after that install the SSL without any action on your side apart from placing your order.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Considering that it is possible to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all our packages feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you plan 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 which we provide absolutely free. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you have registered through our company or elsewhere then use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you run a web hosting company, for example, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. In case you need more IPs than the three our packages feature, you're able to get extra ones in increments of three either during the signup process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
