If you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a special number which is used to identify every device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there're a lot more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for a number of websites even in case they are owned by several users. While this doesn't affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a website, granting it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you want to protect the payment or login details that your website visitors enter, you need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

If you use any of our shared hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP to your account without difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you've picked for the account throughout the registration process, so you'll be able to use 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, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each and every domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL through our company, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration tool, that 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

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes just a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a hosting account before, you will not have any kind of difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP. Every domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP address in place of the server's shared one and you're able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also find all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. In case that you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you are able to select everything to be set up automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up the certificate within minutes, so you won't need to do anything on your end other than approving your SSL request through email.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting

All VPS web hosting packages that we provide come with a dedicated IP address, so you will not share your IP with any other client with some other account on the same machine. If you select a website hosting Control Panel for the server during the registration process, you'll receive an extra dedicated IP too and you'll be able to use it for any content that you host on the VPS - an Internet site, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etcetera. In case you require more IPs, you'll be able to order them as a further upgrade through your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server within a matter of minutes. You will be able to control your IPs without any difficulty through your web hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you'll receive to take care of the virtual machine.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Considering that you are able to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all of our plans come with three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you wish to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs which we provide free of charge. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you have registered through our company or elsewhere then use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you own a web hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as an independent provider. When you need more IP addresses than the three the packages come with, you will be able to buy additional ones in increments of three either throughout the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
