All devices on the Web are recognized by a unique number called an IP address, for example 123.123.123.123. When you have a website, the domain that you enter in order to load it is for your convenience, yet the server where the website files are still has an IP address. As there are many more sites and devices than there're IPs, all of the shared hosting servers have a number of websites under the same IP, while when you use a dedicated server you will have a dedicated IP too. Even in the first case though, you will be able to obtain a dedicated IP for your websites and host them on a shared server. An advantage would be that you will enjoy far better search engine positions because a dedicated IP generally means a quicker loading site. In addition, you need such an IP in case you intend to acquire an SSL certificate for your site and shield the info that your visitors submit on it.
Dedicated IP Address in Hosting
We provide you with dedicated IPs with all of our Linux hosting whatever the data center location and you're able to purchase one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will show up inside your account and you're able to request, delete or view your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You can decide what number of sites or subdomains will use a certain IP as you can assign one with a few clicks to every hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be your main site, that uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer goods or services on the internet and it can have a dedicated IP combined with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP that a site uses from the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set a few of your sites to use one and the same dedicated IP as long as there is no SSL installed for it.
Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it very easy to purchase a dedicated IP and use it for any kind of site that you have in the account irrespective of whether it's under a domain or a subdomain. With only a few clicks you can order the IP and when our system assigns it, you can set it for one or several sites via the Hosted Domains part of the Control Panel. In the same location you'll also be able to see 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? In case the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take advantage of our useful SSL wizard that will make the whole process really easy due to the fact that it'll request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and then install the SSL without the need of any action on your side other than placing your order.
