If you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - a unique number that's used to detect any kind of device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name which you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. As there're many more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for a variety of websites even in case they are owned by separate users. Even though this doesn't affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a particular site, providing it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you plan to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors submit, you'll need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

When you use any of our shared hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've selected for your account during the registration process, thus you are able to use 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 as you can adjust each domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL from our company, you will be able to use our auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy a semi-dedicated server account through us, you have the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IPs as you'd like depending on your needs. It will take a few clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to buy a new IP and a couple of more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is really easy and your website will start loading from the new IP address in a few minutes. Hepsia will enable you to view all of the IPs which you'll be able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. Provided you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, which can assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you send your order, so you do not have to modify anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting

If you purchase a virtual private server from us, you'll have one dedicated IP address by default and an additional one when you acquire a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You'll be able to use the IPs for any sort of purpose - a website, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you are able to use to point to your VPS any domain name which you plan to host. Additionally, you can add more dedicated IPs to your VPS account when you need them. You can do this via the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain in order to take care of renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations and it takes just a few clicks. Shortly after you post your order, the extra IP addresses will be available, so you're able to use them the way you like.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Because you will be able to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all of our plans feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you would like to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs that we provide you with absolutely free. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you have registered through our company or elsewhere then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you manage a website hosting company, for example, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. If you need more IPs than the three the packages feature, you will be able to buy additional ones in increments of three either throughout the signup process or through your billing Control Panel at any time.
