When you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to detect any kind of 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 lower level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there're a lot more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use a single IP for multiple websites even if they belong to several users. While this does not affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a particular website, granting it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you wish to protect the payment or login data that your site visitors enter, you need an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
We provide you with dedicated IPs with all our cloud hosting regardless of the data center location and you're able to get one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. A new section will show up inside your account and you're able to request, delete or view your IPs with just a few clicks. You can choose what number of domains or subdomains will use a given IP since you can assign one with a few clicks to any hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be your main website, that uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer goods or services on the internet and it might have a dedicated IP along with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which a website uses via the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set some of your sites to use the same dedicated IP provided that there's no SSL set up for it.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
In case you obtain a VPS server from us, you will have one dedicated IP address as standard and another one if you acquire a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You are able to use the IPs for any sort of purpose - a site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you can use to point to your VPS any website which you want to host. You can even add extra dedicated IP addresses to your VPS account any time you need them. This can be done via the billing Control Panel that you will receive so as to control renewals, upgrade purchases and domain name registrations and it will take no more than a few clicks. Shortly after you send your order, the added IP addresses will be available, so you're able to use them the way you like.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All the dedicated servers that we provide come with three dedicated IP addresses by default and for free. You're able to employ them for any kind of purpose according to the content that you've got on your server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, 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 website hosting accounts, and many more. You will also be able to get more dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones which come with your server. You can get the IPs in sets of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server shortly after you send your order, which means that you can use them without delays.
