All devices on the Internet are recognized by a specific number called an IP address, for instance 123.123.123.123. In case you have a site, the domain that you enter to open it is to save you time, yet the server where the website files are still has an IP. Due to the fact that there are many more sites and devices than there're IP addresses, all of the shared website hosting servers have a number of websites under the very same IP, while when you use a dedicated server you'll have a dedicated IP as well. Even in the first case though, you will be able to acquire a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you may get far better search engine rankings since a dedicated IP generally means a faster loading website. What is more, you need such an IP in case you want to purchase an SSL certificate for your site and protect the data that visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting
We provide dedicated IP addresses with all our website hosting whatever the data center location and you can acquire one or several IPs from your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will appear inside your account and you can request, view or delete your IPs with just a few clicks. You'll be able to choose how many sites or subdomains will use a given IP as you can assign one with a few clicks to every hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be the main website, that uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer services or goods on the internet and it might have a dedicated IP address combined with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a site uses via the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may 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 Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all of our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it very easy to obtain a dedicated IP address and use it for each site that you have in your account irrespective of whether it's under a domain or a subdomain. With only a few clicks you will be able to order the IP and once our system assigns it, you'll be able to set it for one or several sites from the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel. In the same location you can also view what IP is used by each and every domain or subdomain, a long list of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what website they're assigned to? If the IP you will need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take full advantage of our helpful SSL wizard which will make the entire process super easy as it will request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and then set up the SSL without any action on your side aside from placing the order.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
If you get a dedicated server, you probably would like to run some web app or host a lot of websites, so we supply 3 dedicated IP addresses free of cost with each package and you will be able to use them the way you like - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name that you've registered here or via another company. The aforementioned option is very helpful when you use the dedicated server to host customers' websites as it'll give you credibility and anonymity as a website hosting company. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add additional IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you will be able to go ahead and take advantage of the brand new dedicated IP addresses just a couple of minutes after you send your order.
