If you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - a special number that is used to detect a device connected to the Web. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there are far more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for a number of sites even if they belong to several users. Even though this doesn't affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a given website, giving it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you would like to protect the payment or login data that your site visitors submit, you should have an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

We offer dedicated IPs with all our cloud hosting plans whatever the data center location and you can purchase one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will appear in your account and you're able to request, delete or view your IPs with just a few clicks. You are able to choose how many domains or subdomains will use a certain IP as you can assign one with a couple of clicks to any hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be the main site, which uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer services or goods online and it could have a dedicated IP in addition to an SSL certificate. You can change the IP that a site 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 a few of your websites to use the same dedicated IP provided that there is no SSL installed for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP address takes only a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a hosting account before, you will not encounter any difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP address. Any domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP address as an alternative to the server's shared one and you'll be able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also see 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 instrument through which you can select everything to be set up automatically. When you use this feature, our system will modify the IP address 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 other than approving your SSL order through email.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

All of our VPS web hosting plans provide you with one dedicated IP as standard and when you obtain a web hosting Control Panel (cPanel, Hepsia, DirectAdmin) throughout the registration process, you will acquire an extra one too completely free. You are able to employ them as you see fit - to access site content, to manage a web application, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name which you have and use the latter for any other domain that you'd like to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you will be able to take care of all of the plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain registrations will enable you to order additional dedicated IP addresses if you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them without delay.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans that we offer include three dedicated IP addresses as standard and for free. You can use them for any type of purpose based on the content that you've got on the server - a game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients may use to redirect domain names to their hosting accounts, etceterra. In addition, you can order extra dedicated IP addresses from the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with the plan. You will be able to buy the IPs in groups of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server shortly after you send your order, so that you can use them without delays.
