If you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that is used to detect any kind of device connected to the Internet. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Due to the fact that there're far more sites than IPs, shared hosting servers use a single IP for a variety of websites even if they belong to several users. Even though this does not affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a particular website, granting it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you would like to secure the payment or login information that your website visitors enter, you need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting

We provide you with dedicated IPs with all our Linux website hosting whatever the data center location and you can get one or several IPs via your Hepsia Control Panel. A fresh section will appear as part of your account and you can request, view or delete your IPs with several clicks. You can choose how many sites or subdomains will use a particular IP as you can assign one with a couple of clicks to every hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be the main site, which uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer services or goods on the web and it might have a dedicated IP address along with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP that a domain uses via 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 one and the same dedicated IP given that there's no SSL activated for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting

As our Linux dedicated hosting feature three dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans by default, we shall give you a head start if you wish to run any app which requires such an IP. We provide them free of charge 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 that you host, an SSL certificate for any website on the server, a software server (games, VOIP), and so on. From the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will get to organize renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you'll also be able to buy more dedicated IP addresses in groups of three any time. They will be assigned to your server in a few minutes, so that you can start using them for your websites and web-based apps right away.
