Dedicated IP Address
Learn what a dedicated IP address is actually and exactly why your web site will likely need one eventually.
When you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - a special number that is used to detect every device connected to the Web. The website name which you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there are far more sites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for multiple sites even if they are owned by several users. While this does not affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a site, providing it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you wish to secure the payment or login information that your site visitors type in, you need an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting
We supply dedicated IPs with all our Linux website hosting plans
regardless of the data center location and you're able to purchase one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will show up inside your account and you will be able to request, delete or view your IPs with several clicks. You are able to select how many sites or subdomains will use a particular IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to every hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be the main site, that uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer goods or services on the internet and it can have a dedicated IP address along with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP that a site 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 some of your sites to use a single dedicated IP provided that there's no SSL activated for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server
account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes just a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a web hosting account before, you will not have any kind of difficulties to acquire and assign a dedicated IP. Every domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP instead of the server's shared one and you're able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also find all IPs that your websites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is available or you're already using it. In case that you want an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you'll be able to select everything to be set up automatically. With this feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install the certificate within minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end other than approving the SSL order via electronic mail.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
As you can run almost anything on a dedicated server
, all our plans feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you wish to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you're able to use the IPs that we provide you with without charge. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you've registered with our company or somewhere else then use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you own a hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. In case you need more IPs than the three our plans come with, you will be able to purchase additional ones in increments of three either throughout the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
