If you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - a special number that's used to identify any kind of device connected to the Web. The website name that you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there're a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for multiple sites even if they belong to different users. Even though this doesn't affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a certain site, giving it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you would like to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors type in, you need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

When you use some of our shared website hosting packages, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've selected for your account throughout the signup process, so you'll be able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can edit each and every domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through us, you can use the auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you would like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes only a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a web hosting account before, you will not experience any kind of difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP. Each domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP in place of the server's shared one and you'll be able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also view all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is accessible or you're already using it. In case that you'd like to have 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 of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install your certificate in a couple of minutes, so you shall not need to do anything on your end except for approving your SSL request via email.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

If you acquire a VPS server from us, you will have one dedicated IP address by default and another one in case you acquire a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IP addresses for any sort of purpose - a site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you're able to use to point to your VPS any domain name that you wish to host. Additionally, you can add extra dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account if you need them. You can do this through the billing Control Panel that you'll acquire so as to control renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it takes only a few clicks. After you submit your order, the extra IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you will be able to use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All of the dedicated web hosting plans that we offer have three dedicated IP addresses as standard and free of charge. You are able to use them for any purpose depending on the content that you've got on your server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your customers may use to redirect domain names to their hosting accounts, etc. You will also be able to purchase extra dedicated IP addresses via the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with your plan. You can get the IPs in sets of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server soon after you submit your order, so that you can start using them without delays.
