When you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - a unique number that is used to distinguish any device connected to the Net. The website name which you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there are a lot more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use the same IP for a variety of sites even in case they are owned by separate users. Even though this doesn't affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a given site, giving it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you plan to protect the payment or login information that your website visitors enter, you should have an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting

Using a cloud website hosting account on our cloud platform, you can buy a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the US, Great Britain or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains section of our 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. When you wish to use an SSL certificate to secure the information of your site visitors and you obtain it through our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't need to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion board where users can share their opinion about your services, for example.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting

In case you need a dedicated server, you probably want to run a web application or host a number of websites, so we provide three dedicated IP addresses for free with each and every plan and you will be able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name that you have registered here or through another company. The aforementioned option is really useful when you use the dedicated server to host users' sites as it'll give you trustworthiness and anonymity as a web hosting company. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add additional IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, therefore you will be able to go ahead and take advantage of the brand new dedicated IP addresses a few minutes after you send your order.
