When you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - a unique number that is used to distinguish a device connected to the Net. The website name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there are many more websites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for a number of sites even in case they are owned by different users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a given website, giving it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you wish to secure the payment or login information that your website visitors enter, you'll need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

We supply dedicated IPs with all our cloud hosting regardless of the data center location and you are able to acquire one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will show up as part of your account and you are able to request, delete or view your IPs with a couple of clicks. You're able to decide what number of domains or subdomains will use a given IP as you can assign one with a couple of clicks to any hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be the main site, that uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer goods or services online and it can have a dedicated IP address combined with an SSL certificate. You can change 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 few of your sites to use a single dedicated IP provided that there is no SSL installed for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All the dedicated servers that we offer include three dedicated IP addresses as standard and for free. You can use them for any type of purpose according to the content that you've got on the server - a video 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 redirect domain names to their website hosting accounts, and many more. You can also purchase more dedicated IP addresses via the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with your server. You will be able to get the IPs in groups of three and they will be added to your dedicated server shortly after you submit your order, which means that you can start using them without any delays.
