When you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - a special number which is used to identify every device connected to the Internet. The website name that you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there are many more sites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for multiple sites even if they belong to different users. Even though this does not affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a given site, giving it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors submit, you should have an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

When you use any of our shared hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've selected for the account throughout the signup process, so it is possible to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can edit each domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from our company, you're able to use the auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you want to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With only a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to add one or several dedicated IP addresses to your Linux semi-dedicated hosting service and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will help you find the available IPs and to check those that are in use in no time. If you want to acquire a new IP for an SSL certificate, you are able to use the auto-configuration function, that is available in our SSL order wizard. If you enable this feature, you will not need to do anything after you send in your order because our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, then set up the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. In this way, you will be able to protect the details that visitors upload on your site even if you lack previous experience with this kind of matters.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting

All of our Linux VPS hosting come with one dedicated IP address by default and in case you obtain a web hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, cPanel, Hepsia) during the registration process, you'll get an additional one as well free of charge. You'll be able to use them the way you like - to access online content, to run a web app, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website that you have and use the latter for any other website that you want to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you can take care of all the plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will enable you to order more dedicated IP addresses in case you need them for any purpose. Just a few 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 Web Hosting

Because all of our Linux dedicated web hosting feature three dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans as standard, we'll give you a serious advantage in case you wish to run any application that requires such an IP. We provide them at no charge and you are able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain which you host, an SSL certificate for any site on your server, a software server (games, VOIP), etc. Through the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will get to manage renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you will also be able to obtain more dedicated IP addresses in groups of three whenever you need. They will be assigned to your server in no time, so you can start using them for your sites and web-based apps without delay.
