When you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a special number that's used to distinguish any device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name which you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Because there are a lot more sites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for a number of sites even if they belong to different users. Even though this does not affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a website, giving it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you wish to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors enter, you need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

When you use a shared hosting account on our cloud platform, you can purchase a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks regardless of where your account is - in the USA, the United Kingdom or Australia. This is done from the Hosted Domains part of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what websites they are assigned to. If you wish to use an SSL certificate so as to secure the info of your site visitors and you obtain it through our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you won't need to do anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a website in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a message board where users can share opinions about your services, for example.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With just a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to add one or multiple dedicated IP addresses to your Linux semi-dedicated hosting and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will allow you to view the available IPs and to keep track of the ones which are in use in no time. In case you want to obtain a new IP for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration function, which is available in our SSL order wizard. If you activate this feature, you won't have to do anything after you post your order as our system will request a dedicated IP address, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, then set up the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. This way, you will be able to shield the information that visitors post on your site even if you lack previous experience with this kind of matters.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting

All of our Linux VPS web hosting feature one dedicated IP address as standard and if you choose a hosting Control Panel (cPanel, Hepsia, DirectAdmin) throughout the signup process, you'll obtain an extra one too free of cost. You will be able to use them the way you like - 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 domain that you want to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you're able to control all plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will enable you to order more dedicated IPs in case you need them for any purpose. Just a couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you will be able to use them immediately.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you acquire a dedicated server, you probably would like to run a web application or host a number of websites, so we provide three dedicated IP addresses completely free with each and every package and you are able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name which you have registered here or via another company. The last mentioned option is very useful when you use your dedicated server to host clients' Internet sites as it will give you credibility and anonymity as a website hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will enable you to add more IPs as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes just a few clicks in the Upgrades section, therefore you can go ahead and start using the new dedicated IP addresses several minutes after you submit your order.
