If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - a unique number that's used to identify every device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there are far more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for multiple sites even if they belong to several users. While this doesn't affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a certain site, giving it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you want to protect the payment or login information that your site visitors submit, you'll need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

We supply dedicated IPs with all our Linux shared website hosting packages whatever the data center location and you're able to buy one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will show up in your account and you can request, delete or view your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You'll be able to choose what number of websites or subdomains will use a particular IP as you can assign one with a few clicks to every hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be your main site, which uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer goods or services on the web and it might have a dedicated IP together with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a domain uses through the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set a couple of of your websites to use a single dedicated IP given that there's no SSL activated for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to add one or multiple dedicated IP addresses to your Linux semi-dedicated hosting package and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will help you view the available IP addresses and to monitor those which are in use with ease. Provided you want to acquire a new IP for an SSL certificate, you can use the auto-configuration function, which is available in our SSL order wizard. If you activate this option, you will not have to do anything after you send in your order since our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, then add the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. In this way, you can secure the info that visitors post on your site even when you lack previous experience with such matters.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Since it is possible to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all of our packages feature three dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you wish to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you can use the IPs which we supply free of charge. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you've registered through us or elsewhere then employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you run a web hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. When you need more IP addresses than the three our plans include, you're able to buy extra ones in increments of 3 either throughout the registration process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
