Dedicated IP Address
What exactly is a dedicated IP? Why could you need one for your website?
When you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - a special number which is used to distinguish any device connected to the Web. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there're far more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for multiple sites even if they belong to separate users. Even though this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a particular website, giving it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you wish to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors type in, you need an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting
When you use a cloud hosting
account on our cloud platform, you are able to buy a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the US, the United Kingdom or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains part of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they're allotted to. If you want to use an SSL certificate in order to secure the information of your visitors and you acquire it through our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion board where users can share their opinion about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you buy a semi-dedicated server
account through us, you have the opportunity to obtain as many dedicated IP addresses as you like depending on your business needs. It takes just a few clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to order a new IP plus several more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The entire process is really easy and your website will start loading from the new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will allow you to see all IPs which you are able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. Provided you would like to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which will assign a new IP and set up the certificate as soon as you submit your order, so you don't need to customize anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account by yourself.
