When you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a unique number that is used to distinguish a device connected to the Internet. The domain name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there are far more sites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for a number of sites even in case they belong to different users. Even though this doesn't affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a website, granting it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you would like to secure the payment or login info that your website visitors type in, you'll need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

With a cloud hosting account on our cloud platform, you'll be able to purchase a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks no matter where your account is - in the United States, the UK or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains part of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also monitor what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they are allotted to. When you would like to use an SSL certificate to secure the info of your site visitors and you obtain it from us, our system can assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you won't be required to anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you may still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a community forum where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes just a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a web hosting account before, you won't have any kind of difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP address instead of the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you can also view all IPs that your sites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is available or you are already using it. In case that you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you can select everything to be installed automatically. When you use this feature, our system will change the IP 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 approving your SSL request via email.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting

All of our Linux VPS web hosting packages feature one dedicated IP address by default and if you get a website hosting Control Panel (cPanel, Hepsia, DirectAdmin) throughout the registration process, you'll obtain a second one as well absolutely free. You will be able to use them as you decide - to access site content, to manage a web app, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain which you have and use the latter for any other website that you'd like to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you're able to control all of the plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain name registrations will enable you to order extra dedicated IPs in case you need them for any purpose. Just a few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them instantly.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Since you can run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all our packages come with three dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you would like to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you're able to use the IPs which we provide for free. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you've registered with us or anywhere else then employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you run a web hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent provider. When you need more IP addresses than the three our plans include, you will be able to buy additional ones in increments of 3 either throughout the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
