When you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - a special number that's used to detect a device connected to the Internet. The website name that you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Because there're a lot more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for many different websites even if they are owned by separate users. While this doesn't affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a particular website, providing it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you would like to protect the payment or login info that your site visitors enter, you should have an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

With a web hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to acquire a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks no matter where your account is - in the USA, Britain or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains section of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they're assigned to. When you want to use an SSL certificate to secure the info of your site visitors and you obtain it from us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't need to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion forum where users can share opinions about your services, for example.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

As it's possible to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all of our packages come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you need to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs which we provide you with free of charge. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you have registered through our company or any place else and employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you run a website hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone service provider. In case you need more IP addresses than the three the plans provide you with, you're able to get extra ones in increments of 3 either during the signup process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
