When you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - a unique number that's used to detect any kind of device connected to the Net. The domain name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. As there are a lot more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for many different sites even if they are owned by different users. Even though this does not affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a website, providing it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you plan to protect the payment or login information that your site visitors enter, you should have an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

We supply dedicated IPs with all of our cloud plans irrespective of the data center location and you can obtain one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. A fresh section will show up as part of your account and you'll be able to request, view or delete your IPs with several clicks. You're able to decide how many websites or subdomains will use a given IP as you can assign one with a few clicks to every hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be the main site, which uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer services or goods on the net and it could have a dedicated IP in addition to an SSL certificate. You can change the IP that a website uses from 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 few of your websites to use a single dedicated IP given that there is no SSL set up for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Because all our dedicated web hosting plans feature three dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans as standard, we'll give you a head start if you wish to run any software which requires this type of an IP. We supply them at zero cost and you will be able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain which you host, an SSL certificate for any website on the server, a software server (online games, VOIP), etc. From the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain to control renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you will also be able to purchase more dedicated IPs in groups of three at any time. They will be assigned to your server within a few minutes, so that you can start using them for your sites and web-based apps right away.
