If you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a special number that is used to identify every device connected to the Web. The website name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Since there are many more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use a single IP for several websites even in case they belong to different users. Even though this doesn't affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a given website, granting it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to protect the payment or login information that your site visitors submit, you will need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

When you use any of our shared hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account without any difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have chosen for the account during the sign-up process, which means that it is possible to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can modify each domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through us, you are able to use our auto-configuration instrument, which 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 only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you can add one or multiple dedicated IP addresses to your Linux semi-dedicated hosting plan and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will help you find the available IPs and to monitor the ones that are in use with ease. If you wish to obtain a new IP for an SSL certificate, you will be able to use the auto-configuration function, which is available in our SSL order wizard. If you activate this feature, you won't have to do anything after you send in your order since our system will request a dedicated IP address, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, and then install the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without any action on your end. That way, you're able to shield the details that visitors submit on your website even when you don't have any previous experience with this type of matters.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS server from our company, you will receive one dedicated IP address by default and an additional one if you get a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You'll be able to use the IPs for any kind of purpose - a website, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you'll be able to use to point to your VPS any domain name that you would like to host. You can also add extra dedicated IPs to the VPS account if you need them. You can do this from the billing Control Panel that you will get so as to manage renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it will take no more than a few clicks. Soon after you post your order, the added IP addresses will be available, so you will be able to use them the way you like.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All of the dedicated web hosting plans that we supply feature 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and free of charge. You are able to employ them for any type of purpose depending on the content that you have on your server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients can use to direct domains to their web hosting accounts, and much more. You can also order more dedicated IP addresses from the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with your plan. You will be able to purchase the IPs in groups of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server right after you send your order, so that you can start using them without any delays.
