If you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - an exclusive number which is used to detect a device connected to the Internet. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there're far more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for a variety of websites even in case they are owned by several users. Even though this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a particular website, granting it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you would like to secure the payment or login information that your site visitors type in, you should have an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

If you use any of our cloud hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have selected for the account during the signup process, so you can use 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 modify each domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through our company, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you wish to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting

Due to the fact that you're able to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all of our plans feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you would like to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs which we provide for free. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any website name that you have registered with our company or anywhere else then use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you manage a hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone provider. When you need more IPs than the three the packages include, you're able to buy extra ones in increments of 3 either during the registration process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
