When you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - a special number that is used to distinguish every device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name that you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there are many more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for several websites even in case they belong to separate users. Even though this doesn't affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a particular site, giving it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you plan to secure the payment or login data that your site visitors type in, you'll need an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Hosting

When you use some of our hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have picked for the account throughout the signup process, therefore you're able to take advantage of 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 edit each domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL through our company, you're able to use our auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel, which is provided with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, will make it really easy to purchase a dedicated IP address and use it for any kind of website that you have in your account regardless if it's under a domain or a subdomain. With just a couple of clicks you are able to order the IP and as soon as our system assigns it, you'll be able to set it for one or several sites via the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel. In the same place you'll also be able to see what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, a long list of the dedicated IPs as well as if and what site they're assigned to? If the IP you need is for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to take full advantage of our user-friendly SSL wizard which will make the entire process super easy because it will request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and then set up the SSL without any action on your side apart from placing the order.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

Our VPS service come with one dedicated IP address as standard and if you order a website hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, Hepsia, cPanel) throughout the signup process, you will acquire an extra one too completely free. You are able to use them as you see fit - to access online content, to run a web app, 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 control all of the plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain registrations will allow you to order more dedicated IPs when you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them right away.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

If you buy a dedicated server, you probably want to run a web application or host a lot of Internet sites, so we supply 3 dedicated IP addresses free of cost with each and every plan and you can use them the way you like - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain which you have registered here or from another company. The last option is really useful in case you use your dedicated server to host clients' websites since it will give you credibility and anonymity as a hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add extra IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes only a few clicks in the Upgrades section, so you can go ahead and take advantage of the new dedicated IP addresses a few minutes after you send your order.
