If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a special number that is used to identify any kind of device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there are far more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for multiple websites even if they are owned by separate users. While this doesn't affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a given site, granting it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you would like to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors enter, you need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

If you use some of our shared web hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account with ease and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have picked for your account throughout the registration process, which means that it is possible to take full 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 adjust each domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through us, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you wish to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will have the option to obtain as many dedicated IP addresses as you would like depending on your preferences. It will take just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to acquire a new IP plus a few more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is very simple and your site will start loading from your new IP address in no time. Hepsia will allow you to view all the IPs which you can use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free 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 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 don't need to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS

If you acquire a virtual private server from our company, you'll have one dedicated IP address as standard and an additional one when you get a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You're able to use the IPs for any kind of purpose - an Internet site, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you can use to point to your VPS any domain name that you wish to host. Also, you can add extra dedicated IPs to the VPS account every time you need them. This can be done from the billing Control Panel that you'll get in order to control renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it will take no more than a few clicks. Shortly after you submit your order, the extra IP addresses will be available, so you'll be able to use them the way you like.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting

All the dedicated hosting that we provide include 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and cost-free. You're able to employ them for any purpose based on the content that you have on your server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients can use to direct domain names to their hosting accounts, and much more. You can also acquire additional dedicated IPs via the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with your plan. You are able to get the IPs in sets of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server shortly after you submit your order, which means that you can start using them without delays.
