When you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - a unique number which is used to identify every device connected to the Web. The domain name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there're many more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for many different websites even in case they belong to separate users. While this doesn't affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a certain website, providing it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you wish to protect the payment or login information that your website visitors type in, you'll need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

If you use any of our shared website hosting packages, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account in no time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've selected for the account throughout the signup process, so you'll be able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In 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 since you can adjust each domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from us, you are able to use the auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes just a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a website hosting account previously, you won't have any kind of difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP instead of the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you can also see all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is available or you are already using it. If you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you will be able to select everything to be set up automatically. With this particular feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up the certificate within minutes, so you shall not have to do anything on your end except for approving your SSL order via email.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

All of our VPS web hosting plans feature one dedicated IP address as standard and if you select a hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, Hepsia, cPanel) throughout the registration process, you'll acquire a second one too without charge. You are able to employ them as you see fit - to access site content, to manage a web application, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website that you have and use the latter for any other domain that you need to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you're able to take care of all plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain registrations will allow you to order extra dedicated IP addresses if you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you will be able to use them immediately.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

As you'll be able to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all our packages feature three dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you want to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you can use the IPs which we supply for free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you have registered with us or somewhere else and use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you run a website hosting company, for example, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone service provider. In case you need more IPs than the three our plans come with, you're able to purchase extra ones in increments of 3 either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
