If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - a unique number that is used to distinguish any device connected to the Net. The domain name which you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there're a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for a number of sites even if they are owned by different users. While this does not affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a website, providing it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you would like to protect the payment or login information that your website visitors type in, you should have an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

When you use some of our shared hosting packages, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account in no time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've selected for your account during the sign-up process, therefore 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 electronic commerce site, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can modify each and every domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through our company, you are able to use the auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you wish to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account through us, you'll have the option to get as many dedicated IP addresses as you'd like depending on your business needs. It will take just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to obtain a new IP and a few more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is really easy and your website will start loading from your new IP address within minutes. Hepsia will allow you to see all the IP addresses which you're able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. Provided you would like to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and install the certificate as soon as you submit your order, so you won't need to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

Our VPS web hosting plans feature one dedicated IP as standard and in case you select a website hosting Control Panel (cPanel, Hepsia, DirectAdmin) during the registration process, you'll get a second one as well free of cost. You will be able to employ them as you see fit - to access online content, to manage a web application, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name that you have and use the latter for any other website that you intend to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you're able to control all the plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will allow you to order extra dedicated IP addresses when 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 without delay.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

As all our dedicated web hosting plans feature 3 dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans as standard, we will give you a head start if you would like to run any app which needs this type of an IP. We supply them free of cost and you will be able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain which you host, an SSL certificate for any site on the server, a software server (games, VOIP), etc. Through the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will get to manage renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you can also purchase more dedicated IP addresses in groups of three any time. They'll be assigned to your server in minutes, so that you can start using them for your websites and web-based applications without delay.
