When you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - a unique number that is used to identify a device connected to the Net. The website name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Because there are far more sites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for many different sites even in case they belong to several users. While this doesn't affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a given website, granting it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you wish to protect the payment or login info that your site visitors submit, you will need an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

We provide you with dedicated IP addresses with all of our web hosting irrespective of the data center location and you can get one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. A fresh section will appear in your account and you are able to request, delete or view your IPs with a couple of clicks. You can choose what number of domains or subdomains will use a given IP since you can assign one with a few clicks to any hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be your main website, which uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer goods or services on the internet and it could have a dedicated IP combined with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a website uses via the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set a few of your websites to use the same dedicated IP as long as there is no SSL set up for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

With only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you can add one or a variety of dedicated IP addresses to your Linux semi-dedicated hosting plan and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will help you see the available IP addresses and to check those that are in use with ease. Provided you want to acquire a new IP for an SSL certificate, you will be able to use the auto-configuration function, that's available in our SSL order wizard. When you enable this feature, you won't need to do anything after you send in your order as our system will request a dedicated IP address, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, and then add the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without any action on your end. This way, you will be able to secure the details that visitors post on your website even if you lack previous experience with such matters.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS server from us, you'll have one dedicated IP address automatically and an extra one if you get a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IPs for any kind of purpose - a website, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you can use to point to your VPS any domain that you plan to host. You can even add more dedicated IP addresses to your VPS account every time you need them. You can do this through the billing Control Panel that you will acquire so as to manage renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it will take only a few clicks. Shortly after you post your order, the additional IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you'll be able to use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All the dedicated web hosting plans that we provide feature 3 dedicated IP addresses as standard and absolutely free. You are able to employ them for any type of purpose depending on the content that you've got on the server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your clients may use to redirect domain names to their hosting accounts, and many more. What's more, you can obtain additional dedicated IPs from the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with the server. You are able to purchase the IPs in sets of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server right after you submit your order, so you can start using them without delays.
