When you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a unique number which is used to identify every device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there're a lot more sites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for a variety of sites even in case they are owned by separate users. Even though this does not affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a site, giving it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you wish to secure the payment or login details that your site visitors type in, you should have an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Hosting

When you use any of our hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account without any difficulty 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, thus you'll be able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can modify each domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from our company, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you want to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account through us, you'll get the opportunity to get as many dedicated IP addresses as you need depending on your needs. It takes a couple of clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to acquire a new IP and several more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is really easy and your site will start loading from the new IP address in a few minutes. Hepsia will enable you to see all of the IP addresses which you are able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. If you'd like to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you may take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which can assign a new IP and install the certificate once you submit your order, so you won't need to change anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS server from our company, you will get a dedicated IP address as standard and another one in case you obtain a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You are able to use the IP addresses for any kind of purpose - an Internet site, 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 website which you want to host. You can even add extra dedicated IP addresses to your VPS account any time you need them. You can do this from the billing Control Panel that you'll receive to take care of renewals, upgrade purchases and domain name registrations and it takes just a couple of clicks. After you submit your order, the added IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you'll be able to use them as you see fit.
