If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to identify any kind of device connected to the Internet. The domain name that you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Due to the fact that there are far more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for a variety of websites even if they belong to different users. Even though this does not affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a certain website, giving it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you would like to secure the payment or login info that your site visitors type in, you will need an IP together with the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting
With a shared website hosting account on our cloud platform, you can obtain a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the US, the UK or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains area of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are assigned to. In case you want to use an SSL certificate to protect the info of your site visitors and you obtain it from our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't have to do anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a discussion board where users can share opinions about your services, for instance.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
With just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you can add one or several dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated server and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will allow you to find the available IP addresses and to check the ones which are in use in no time. If you wish to obtain a new IP for an SSL certificate, you can use the auto-configuration function, which is available in our SSL order wizard. If you activate this feature, you will not need to do anything after you send in your order since our system will request a dedicated IP address, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, and then set up the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without any action on your end. In this way, you can protect the data that visitors upload on your site even if you don't have any previous experience with this kind of matters.

You can also use the IP addresses to make child name servers for one or more domains that you have and after that you can set them as NS records for any other domain that you would like to point to your Virtual Server. When you need extra dedicated IPs, it will take you just a couple of clicks in your billing Control Panel to get them and they'll be allocated to your server very quickly.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
Because you can run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our packages come with three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you would like to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you can use the IPs which we provide free of charge. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you've registered through our company or any place else then employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you own a web hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. If you need more IP addresses than the three our packages feature, you can get additional ones in increments of 3 either throughout the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
