If you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to distinguish any device connected to the Net. The website name which you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Since there are a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for multiple sites even in case they belong to separate users. Even though this does not affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a certain website, giving it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you wish to protect the payment or login data that your site visitors enter, you need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

When you use some of our shared hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account with ease and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've chosen for the account during the signup process, which means that you are able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can edit each domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL through our company, you are able to use the auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you will get the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IPs as you would like depending on your preferences. It takes just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to purchase your new IP plus a few more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is really easy and your site will start loading from your new IP address in minutes. Hepsia will allow you to see all IPs which you are able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. If you would like to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and install the certificate the moment you upload your order, so you will not need to change anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting

In case you purchase a virtual private server from us, you'll be given a dedicated IP address automatically and an additional one when you get a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IP addresses for any purpose - a site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you can use to point to your VPS any domain which you would like to host. Also, you can add more dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account any time you need them. You can do this through the billing Control Panel that you will receive in order to manage renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations and it takes no more than a couple of clicks. After you send your order, the added IP addresses will be available, so you can use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you order a dedicated server, you probably want to run a web app or host a number of Internet sites, so we supply 3 dedicated IP addresses totally free with each plan and you're able to use them as you see fit - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain that you have registered here or from another company. The last option is really useful in case you use the dedicated server to host customers' sites since it will give you authority and anonymity as a hosting company. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add extra IPs as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes only a few clicks in the Upgrades section, therefore you are able to go ahead and start using the brand new dedicated IP addresses just a couple of minutes after you submit your order.
