When you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a special number that's used to identify any kind of device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there are many more sites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for a number of websites even if they are owned by several users. While this doesn't affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a particular website, granting it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you would like to secure the payment or login information that your site visitors enter, you should have an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Hosting

If you use any of our hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account in no time and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have picked for the account throughout the registration process, which means that you'll be able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can adjust each and every domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through our company, you can 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

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes no more than a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a hosting account before, you won't encounter any difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP address in place of the server's shared one and you'll be able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also find all IPs that your websites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is accessible or you're already using it. If you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you'll be able to select everything to be set up automatically. With this particular feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install the certificate within a matter of minutes, so you shall not need to do anything on your end other than approving the SSL request via electronic mail.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

Our VPS web hosting plans come with one dedicated IP address by default and if you pick a website hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, Hepsia, cPanel) during the registration process, you'll get an extra one too at no extra cost. You are able to use them as you see fit - to access online content, to run a web application, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain that you have and use the latter for any other domain that you wish to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you'll be able to manage all the plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain registrations will allow you to order extra dedicated IPs in case you need them for any purpose. A few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them instantly.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Due to the fact that you're able to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all of our packages come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you want to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs which we provide free of charge. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any website name that you've registered with us or anywhere else then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you have a website hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone service provider. If you need more IPs than the three the plans provide you with, you're able to purchase additional ones in increments of 3 either during the registration process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
