When you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that's used to distinguish every device connected to the Web. The website name that you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Because there are many more sites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for many different websites even in case they are owned by several users. While this doesn't affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a particular website, giving it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you plan to protect the payment or login information that your site visitors type in, you should have an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

When you use a shared web hosting account on our cloud platform, you will be able to acquire a dedicated IP and assign it to any domain or subdomain with several clicks wherever your account is - in the US, Britain or Australia. This can be done from the Hosted Domains area of the intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you can also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they are assigned to. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate to protect the information of your site visitors and you get it from our company, our system will assign a dedicated IP and set up the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. Meanwhile, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an addition to the main one under a shared IP address - a discussion board where users can share opinions about your services, for example.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you'll get the opportunity to get as many dedicated IPs as you like depending on your preferences. It will take just a couple of clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to order your new IP plus several more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is very easy and your website will start loading from your new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will allow you to view all IPs that you are able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. If you'd like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and install the certificate once you upload your order, so you don't have to customize anything in your semi-dedicated hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS

If you acquire a virtual private server from us, you will have one dedicated IP address by default and an extra one in case you obtain a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You'll be able to use the IPs for any kind of purpose - a website, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you can use to point to your VPS any domain name that you would like to host. You can also add extra dedicated IPs to the VPS account any time you need them. You can do this from the billing Control Panel that you will acquire to take care of renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it will take only a few clicks. After you post your order, the added IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you can use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting

Due to the fact that you will be able to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all of our packages come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you need to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you will be able to use the IPs which we provide you with without 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 any place else then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you have a hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone provider. If you need more IP addresses than the three the packages provide you with, you can buy extra ones in increments of three either throughout the registration process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
