Dedicated IP Address
What exactly is a dedicated IP? Why would you need one for your site?
If you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that is used to identify any device connected to the Net. The domain name that you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. As there are far more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for multiple websites even if they are owned by different users. While this does not affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a certain website, providing it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you plan to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors submit, you should have an IP in addition to the SSL.
Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting
When you use any of our web hosting
packages, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have selected for your account throughout the sign-up process, therefore you'll be able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can adjust each domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through us, you're able to use our auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you wish to use them.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers
With just a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to add one or a variety of dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated server
and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will allow you to see the available IPs and to monitor those that are in use in no time. Provided you wish to acquire a new IP for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration function, that is available in our SSL order wizard. If you activate this feature, you won't have to do anything after you submit your order because our system will request a dedicated IP address, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, then install the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without any action on your end. This way, you can protect the information that visitors submit on your site even when you lack previous experience with this kind of matters.
