When you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a special number which is used to detect a device connected to the Net. The domain name which you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the site 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 sites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for a number of websites even in case they belong to several users. Even though this does not affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a particular site, granting it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you want to secure the payment or login information that your site visitors submit, you will need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

We offer dedicated IPs with all our shared website hosting irrespective of the data center location and you're able to acquire one or several IPs via your Hepsia Control Panel. A new section will appear as part of your account and you're able to request, delete or view your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You will be able to select how many domains or subdomains will use a given IP as you can assign one with a couple of clicks to any hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be the main website, which uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer services or goods on the web and it could have a dedicated IP along with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which a site uses through the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set some of your websites to use a single dedicated IP given that there is no SSL set up for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you obtain a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you'll have the opportunity to obtain as many dedicated IP addresses as you would like depending on the needs you have. It will take a few clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to purchase a new IP plus a few more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very simple and your website will start opening from your new IP address within minutes. Hepsia will allow you to see all of the IPs that you'll be able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. Provided you want to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which will assign a new IP and set up the certificate once you send your order, so you don't need to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

If you obtain a VPS server from our company, you will receive a dedicated IP address as standard and another one in case you obtain a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You are able to use the IP addresses for any sort of purpose - an Internet 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 which you would like to host. Also, you can add extra dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account when you need them. This can be done through the billing Control Panel that you will obtain to take care of renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it will take only a couple of clicks. Shortly after you post your order, the extra IP addresses will be available, so you can use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All the dedicated web hosting plans that we supply come with 3 dedicated IP addresses as standard and cost-free. You are able to use them for any purpose based on the content that you've got on your server - an online game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your customers may use to point domains to their web hosting accounts, and many more. You can also acquire more dedicated IPs through the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with the plan. You can get the IPs in sets of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server shortly after you submit your order, so you can use them with no delays.
