When you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that's used to identify a device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. As there're far more websites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for several websites even in case they are owned by different users. Even though this doesn't affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a particular site, providing it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you plan to secure the payment or login info that your website visitors submit, you need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting

We provide dedicated IP addresses with all of our cloud web hosting whatever the data center location and you are able to obtain one or several IPs from your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will show up as part of your account and you are able to request, view or delete your IPs with a couple of clicks. You will be able to select what number of websites 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 your main website, that uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer goods or services online and it can have a dedicated IP combined with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a website 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 a couple of of your websites to use the same dedicated IP given that there's no SSL installed for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

As you can run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all of our plans feature three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you need to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs that we provide without charge. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you have registered through us or any place else and then employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you own a web hosting company, for example, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. If you need more IP addresses than the three the packages include, you're able to buy extra ones in increments of 3 either during the registration process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
