If you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to distinguish any device connected to the Net. The domain name that you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Because there are many more sites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for many different sites even in case they are owned by separate users. While this doesn't affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a certain website, providing it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you want to protect the payment or login information that your site visitors submit, you will need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

When you use some of our web hosting packages, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've picked for your account during the sign-up process, so you will be able 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 website, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can adjust each and every domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL from our company, you will be able to use the auto-configuration tool, 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

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will get the option to get as many dedicated IPs as you'd like depending on your business needs. It will take just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to purchase your new IP and a few more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is really easy and your site will start opening from the new IP address in no time. Hepsia will enable you to see all IP addresses which you can use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. Provided you'd like to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and set up the certificate once you submit your order, so you don't have to modify anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

Our VPS hosting service provide you with one dedicated IP address as standard and when you get a web hosting Control Panel (cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia) during the registration process, you will acquire a second one too completely free. You're able to employ them the way you like - to access site content, to manage a web app, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain which you have and use the latter for any other domain that you intend to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you can take care of all the plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will enable you to order additional dedicated IP addresses in case you need them for any purpose. Just a few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you will be able to use them without delay.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

If you get a dedicated server, you probably would like to run some web app or host a lot of Internet sites, so we provide three dedicated IPs free of charge with each plan and you're able to use them the way you like - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain that you've registered here or via another company. The last mentioned option is very helpful when you use the dedicated server to host users' websites since it will give you credibility and anonymity as a website hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add extra IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes only a few clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you are able to go ahead and use the new dedicated IPs just a few minutes after you submit your order.
