When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that's used to identify every device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their 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 several websites even in case they are owned by separate users. Even though this does not affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a site, granting it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you plan to protect the payment or login information that your website visitors type in, you need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

When you use any of our web hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account without difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've picked for the account during the signup process, which means that you can take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can edit each domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from our company, you are able to use the auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you purchase a semi-dedicated server account through us, you will get the opportunity to get as many dedicated IPs as you need depending on your preferences. It will take a few clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to acquire your new IP and several more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very easy and your site will start opening from the new IP address in a few minutes. Hepsia will enable you to see all the IPs which you're able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which can assign a new IP and install the certificate the moment you submit your order, so you will not need to change anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

If you purchase a dedicated server, you probably plan to run a web application or host a number of Internet sites, so we provide three dedicated IPs without charge with each and every package and you'll be able to use them as you decide - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name that you've registered here or from another company. The aforementioned option is really helpful if you use your dedicated server to host customers' sites because it'll give you trustworthiness and anonymity as a web hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add more IPs as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, therefore you are able to go ahead and take advantage of your brand new dedicated IP addresses just a few minutes after you send your order.
