When you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - an exclusive number which is used to detect any device connected to the Internet. The website name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Because there're far more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for many different sites even in case they are owned by several users. Even though this does not affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a site, providing it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so if you wish to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors type in, you need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

If you use some of our cloud hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account in no time 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 chosen for the account throughout the registration process, therefore it's possible to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In 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 because you can adjust each and every domain or subdomain individually from the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from our company, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you would like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes no more than a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a website hosting account before, you won't encounter any difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP address. Every domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP instead of the server's shared one and you can make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also find all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is accessible or you are already using it. If you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you will be able to select everything to be set up automatically. With this particular feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install your certificate in a matter of minutes, so you will not need to do anything on your end apart from authorizing your SSL order via electronic mail.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans that we offer have three dedicated IP addresses by default and for free. You will be able to employ them for any purpose depending on the content that you have on the server - a video game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients can use to direct domains to their hosting accounts, and much more. You will also be able to buy more dedicated IP addresses via the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with the plan. You will be able to acquire the IPs in groups of three and they will be added to your dedicated server soon after you submit your order, which means that you can use them without any delays.
