If you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that is used to detect any device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name which you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there're far more sites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for a number of websites even in case they belong to several users. While this doesn't affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a particular website, giving it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you want to protect the payment or login details that your website visitors type in, you'll need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Website Hosting

We provide dedicated IP addresses with all of our Linux shared website hosting irrespective of the data center location and you will be able to buy one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will appear as part of your account and you'll be able to request, delete or view your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You're able to decide what number of sites or subdomains will use a particular IP as you can assign one with a couple of clicks to every 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 net and it can have a dedicated IP along with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP that a domain 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 some of your websites to use one and the same dedicated IP provided that there's no SSL activated for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes only a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a web hosting account before, you will not experience any kind of difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP rather than the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also see all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. If you want 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. When you use this particular feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up your certificate in a couple of minutes, so you shall not need to do anything on your end apart from approving the SSL request via email.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS

All of our Linux VPS feature one dedicated IP as standard and when you obtain a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin) during the registration process, you'll acquire an additional one as well absolutely free. You will be able to use them as you see fit - to access online content, to manage a web application, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name which you have and use the latter for any other website that you would like to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you can take care of all plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will allow you to order extra dedicated IPs if you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you will be able to use them instantly.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting

In case you order a dedicated server, you probably would like to run a web app or host a lot of Internet sites, so we provide three dedicated IP addresses at no charge with every single plan and you'll be able to use them as you see fit - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain that you've registered here or through another company. The last option is very helpful when you use the dedicated server to host clients' sites as it will give you credibility and anonymity as a web hosting company. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add additional IPs as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you will be able to go ahead and employ your brand new dedicated IPs a few minutes after you send your order.
