If you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that's used to detect any kind of device connected to the Internet. The domain name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Due to the fact that there are a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for a number of sites even if they are owned by separate users. While this doesn't affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a given website, giving it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you want to protect the payment or login data that your website visitors enter, you will need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

When you use some of our web hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account in no time and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have chosen for your account during the signup process, which means that it's possible to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each and every domain or subdomain individually from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL through our company, you're able to use our auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you would like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, will make it very easy to acquire a dedicated IP and use it for any kind of website that you have in your account regardless if it's under a domain or a subdomain. With just a couple of clicks you can order the IP and when our system assigns it, you can set it for one or several websites from the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel. In the same location you can also see what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, a list of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what website they are assigned to? Provided the IP you will need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take advantage of our useful SSL wizard that will make the overall process very easy due to the fact that it will request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and after that set up the SSL without any action on your side apart from placing your order.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS server from our company, you'll receive one dedicated IP address by default and an extra one when you get a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You'll be able to use the IP addresses for any kind of purpose - a 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 website that you would like to host. You may also add extra dedicated IPs to the VPS account if you need them. This can be done through the billing Control Panel that you will acquire so as to manage renewals, upgrade purchases and domain name registrations and it takes only a couple of clicks. Shortly after you submit your order, the extra IP addresses will be available, so you are able to use them the way you like.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

In case you get a dedicated server, you probably would like to run a web app or host a number of websites, so we provide three dedicated IPs without charge with each plan and you can use them as you see fit - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name which you've registered here or via another company. The aforementioned option is very useful in case you use your dedicated server to host users' Internet sites because it will give you trustworthiness and anonymity as a web hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add more IPs as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes only a few clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you're able to go ahead and employ the brand new dedicated IP addresses several minutes after you send your order.
