If you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - an exclusive number which is used to identify any kind of device connected to the Net. The domain name which 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 address of the server. Considering that there're many more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for multiple websites even if they belong to separate users. Even though this doesn't affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a particular site, giving it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you would like to protect the payment or login information that your website visitors type in, you will need an IP alongside the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting
We supply dedicated IP addresses with all of our shared web hosting whatever the data center location and you can get one or several IPs from your Hepsia Control Panel. A fresh section will appear in your account and you're able to request, view or delete your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You're able to decide how many domains or subdomains will use a given IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to every hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be your main website, which uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer services or goods on the internet and it might have a dedicated IP in addition to an SSL certificate. You can change the IP that a site uses through the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set some of your sites to use the same dedicated IP given that there's no SSL installed for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers
As all our dedicated servers offer three dedicated IP addresses included in the plans by default, we'll give you a serious advantage in case you want to run any software that needs such an IP. We supply them absolutely free and you'll be able to use them for as long as you use the server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain name that you host, an SSL certificate for any site on your server, a software server (games, VOIP), and so on. From the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will obtain to manage renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you'll also be able to obtain more dedicated IPs in groups of three whenever you want. They will be assigned to your server within minutes, so that you can start using them for your sites and web-based apps right away.
