If you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - an exclusive number which is used to detect every device connected to the Net. The domain name that you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there are many more websites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for several websites even if they belong to several users. Even though this doesn't affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a certain site, granting it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you would like to protect the payment or login details that your website visitors type in, you should have an IP in addition to the SSL.

You will be able to add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. If any of the IPs that you obtain will be used for an SSL certificate, you could enable the automatic configuration attribute in our SSL order wizard then our system will request and assign the IP before it installs the certificate automatically. Our versatile platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP address for a number of sites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes no more than a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a hosting account before, you won't experience any difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP. Every domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP rather than the server's shared one and you're able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also find all IPs that your websites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. In case that you want an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you're able to select everything to be installed automatically. Using this feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up the certificate in a couple of minutes, so you shall not have to do anything on your end other than authorizing the SSL request via electronic mail.
