When you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that's used to detect any kind of device connected to the Net. The website name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there are far more sites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for many different websites even if they belong to different users. While this doesn't affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a certain website, providing it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you would like to secure the payment or login details that your website visitors submit, you need an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

When you use some of our web hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without any difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've picked for your account throughout the sign-up process, so you will be able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can adjust each domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from our company, you will be able to use the auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes no more than a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you have not had a website hosting account previously, you will not have any difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP address rather than the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you can also see all IPs that your sites can use as well as 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 installed 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 your certificate within minutes, so you won't have to do anything on your end apart from approving the SSL order through email.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

All of our VPS servers provide you with one dedicated IP by default and in case you obtain a web hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, cPanel, Hepsia) during the signup process, you'll get an extra one too at no extra cost. You'll be able to use them as you see fit - to access website content, to run a web application, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain that you have and use the latter for any other website that you want to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you'll be able to manage all the plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain name registrations will allow you to order more dedicated IPs in case you need them for any purpose. A few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them immediately.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

As you're able to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all our plans feature three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you wish to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you are able to use the IPs that we provide you with without charge. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you have registered with our company or any place else then employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you manage a website hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. When you need more IP addresses than the three the plans feature, you'll be able to buy extra ones in increments of three either throughout the signup process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
