When you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to distinguish a device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name which you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Since there're a lot more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for a variety of sites even if they belong to several users. Even though this doesn't affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a given website, providing it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you want to secure the payment or login data that your website visitors type in, you'll need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

When you use some of our shared hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP to your account with ease and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have chosen for your account throughout the sign-up process, which means that it's possible to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can edit each and every domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL through our company, you can use our auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you wish to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, that is supplied with our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it very simple to purchase a dedicated IP and use it for any site that you have in the account no matter if it is under a domain or a subdomain. With just a few clicks you'll be able to order the IP and once our system assigns it, you will be able to set it for one or multiple websites via the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel. In the same place you'll also be able to see what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, an index of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what website they are assigned to? In case the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you can take advantage of our helpful SSL wizard that will make the overall process super easy since it will request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and after that set up the SSL without the need of any action on your side aside from placing the order.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS

All of our Linux VPS feature one dedicated IP as standard and when you obtain a hosting Control Panel (cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia) during the signup process, you'll obtain a second one as well free of cost. You're able to use them the way you like - to access online content, to manage a web app, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name which you have and use the latter for any other website that you would like to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you'll be able to manage all of the plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will allow you to order more dedicated IP addresses when you need them for any purpose. Just a couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them straight away.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting

All dedicated hosting that we offer have three dedicated IP addresses as standard and for free. You'll be able to use them for any purpose based on the content that you've got on the server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your customers may use to direct domains to their hosting accounts, and many other things. What's more, you can buy more dedicated IPs through the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with your server. You are able to acquire the IPs in sets of three and they will be added to your dedicated server soon after you send your order, so you can start using them without delays.
