When you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to detect any device connected to the Internet. The website name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there are far more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for several websites even if they are owned by separate users. Even though this does not affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a website, granting it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you plan to protect the payment or login information that your site visitors submit, you will need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Hosting

We supply dedicated IP addresses with all our hosting whatever the data center location and you will be able to purchase one or several IPs via your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will show up inside your account and you will be able to request, view or delete your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You're able to select how many domains or subdomains will use a certain IP since you can assign one with a few clicks to every hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be your main website, that uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer goods or services online and it might have a dedicated IP together with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP that a domain uses from 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 sites to use one and the same dedicated IP given that there is no SSL activated for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes only a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a website hosting account before, you will not experience any difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP rather than the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you can also find all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is available or you are already using it. If you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you will be able to select everything to be installed automatically. With this particular feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install your certificate in a couple of minutes, so you will not need to do anything on your end except for approving the SSL request through email.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers include one dedicated IP by default and in case you obtain a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, DirectAdmin, cPanel) during the signup process, you'll acquire an extra one as well absolutely free. You will be able to employ them as you decide - to access website content, to manage a web application, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain that you have and use the latter for any other website that you intend to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you are able to manage all plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will allow you to order extra dedicated IPs if you need them for any purpose. A few 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 Servers

Since it is possible to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all of our packages feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you wish to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you're able to use the IPs that we provide you with absolutely free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you have registered through our company or elsewhere and use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you manage a web hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. When you need more IP addresses than the three our packages 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.
