When you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that is used to identify a device connected to the Web. The website name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there are a lot more sites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use a single IP for several sites even in case they are owned by separate users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a particular site, providing it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you would like to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors type in, you will need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

With a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to buy a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks regardless of where your account is - in the USA, the United Kingdom or Australia. This is done through the Hosted Domains part of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they are assigned to. In case you wish to use an SSL certificate to protect the information of your visitors and you get it from our company, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't be required to anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP - a community forum where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes just a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a web hosting account before, you will not experience any kind of difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP. Every domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP in place of the server's shared one and you're able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also view all IPs that your websites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is accessible or you are already using it. If you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you can select everything to be installed automatically. When you use this feature, our system will change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install your certificate within a matter of minutes, so you shall not have to do anything on your end except for approving your SSL request via e-mail.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS server from us, you'll have one dedicated IP address as standard and an extra one if you obtain a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You will be able to use the IP addresses for any kind of purpose - a site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you'll be able to use to point to your VPS any website which you want to host. Additionally, you can add extra dedicated IPs to the VPS account if you need them. This can be done through the billing Control Panel that you will obtain in order to control renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it will take only a few clicks. After you post your order, the added IP addresses will be accessible, so you're able to use them the way you like.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

If you get a dedicated server, you probably plan to run a web app or host a lot of websites, so we supply three dedicated IPs free of charge with each and every plan and you're able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain which you've registered here or through another company. The aforementioned option is very useful in case you use your dedicated server to host customers' websites as it will give you credibility and anonymity as a web hosting company. The server billing Control Panel will enable you to add more IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you are able to go ahead and employ your brand new dedicated IPs just a few minutes after you submit your order.
