Dedicated IP Address
What's a dedicated IP? Why could you need one for your web site?
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 device connected to the Web. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there're a lot more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for several websites even in case they belong to several users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a site, providing it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you plan to secure the payment or login information that your website visitors type in, you'll need an IP along with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Hosting
When you use any of our hosting
packages, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have selected for the account throughout the signup process, which means that you are able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can modify each and every domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from our company, you can use the auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you would like to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
With just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to add one or a variety of dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated server
and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will help you find the available IP addresses and to check those that are in use with ease. In case you want to obtain a new IP for an SSL certificate, you can use the auto-configuration function, that's available in our SSL order wizard. If you enable this feature, you will not have to do anything after you submit your order because our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, then install the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. That way, you'll be able to protect the information that visitors submit on your site even if you do not have any previous experience with this type of matters.
Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers
All of our VPS servers
provide you with one dedicated IP as standard and in case you order a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, DirectAdmin, cPanel) during the signup process, you'll acquire a second one too at no extra cost. You're able to use them as you see fit - to access site content, to manage a web app, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website that you have and use the latter for any other website that you need to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you're able to take care of all the plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will enable you to order extra dedicated IP addresses in case you need them for any purpose. Just a couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them immediately.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
All of the dedicated servers
that we supply come with 3 dedicated IP addresses as standard and for free. You can employ them for any purpose depending on the content that you've got on the server - an online game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients may use to direct domain names to their website hosting accounts, etceterra. You'll also be able to obtain more dedicated IPs via the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with your plan. You are able to obtain the IPs in sets of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server right after you submit your order, so you can start using them without delays.
