If you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - a special number that is used to detect a device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name which you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there are a lot more websites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for multiple sites even in case they are owned by several users. While this does not affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a given site, granting it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you wish to protect the payment or login details that your website visitors submit, you should have an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Hosting

We provide you with dedicated IPs with all our Linux hosting packages irrespective of the data center location and you're able to buy one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. A new section will appear in your account and you are able to request, view or delete your IPs with just a couple of clicks. You're able to decide what number of websites or subdomains will use a particular IP as you can assign one with a few clicks to every hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be the main website, that uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer goods or services online and it can have a dedicated IP along with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which a website uses via the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set some of your sites to use a single dedicated IP as long as there is no SSL activated for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you get a semi-dedicated server account through us, you have the option to get as many dedicated IP addresses as you need depending on your business needs. It takes a few clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to purchase a new IP and a few more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is very easy and your site will start opening from your new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will enable you to see all IPs that you can use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. In case you'd like to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and set up the certificate as soon as you send your order, so you do not need to change anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account manually.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting

If you buy a virtual private server from us, you'll receive a dedicated IP address by default and a second one when you get a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You are able to use the IP addresses for any purpose - a site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you're able to use to point to your VPS any domain name that you want to host. Additionally, you can add more dedicated IPs to your VPS account if you need them. You can do this through the billing Control Panel that you'll get in order to control renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it will take only a couple of clicks. Shortly after you submit your order, the extra IP addresses will be available, so you will be able to use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting

Since you will be able to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all our plans come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you would like to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you're able to use the IPs that we provide absolutely free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any website name that you have registered with our company or somewhere else and use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you own a hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. When you need more IP addresses than the three the plans provide you with, you'll be able to get extra ones in increments of 3 either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
