If you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - a unique number that's used to distinguish any kind of device connected to the Web. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Due to the fact that there're far more websites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the same IP for a number of websites even in case they are owned by separate users. Even though this doesn't affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a given site, granting it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you want to protect the payment or login details that your website visitors submit, you'll need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

When you use some of our cloud hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account in no time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have selected for the account throughout the registration process, thus you'll be able to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can adjust each and every domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL from us, you can use the auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you obtain a semi-dedicated server account through us, you'll have the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IP addresses as you like depending on your business needs. It will take just a few clicks inside the Hepsia hosting Control Panel to order a new IP plus several more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very simple and your site will start loading from your new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will enable you to see all of the IP addresses which you'll be able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. If you'd like to use an SSL certificate on any of your sites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and set up the certificate as soon as you submit your order, so you don't need to adjust anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting

As our Linux dedicated web hosting feature 3 dedicated IP addresses provided in the plans as standard, we'll give you a serious advantage in case you wish to run any software that needs this kind of an IP. We provide them free of cost and you can use them for as long as you use the server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain which you host, an SSL certificate for any site on the server, a software server (games, VOIP), etcetera. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will receive to take care of renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you will also be able to acquire more dedicated IPs in groups of three whenever you need. They will be assigned to your server very quickly, so you can start using them for your sites and web-based applications right away.
