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 any device connected to the Internet. The website name that you use for the website 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. As there're many more sites than IPs, shared hosting servers use a single IP for several websites even in case they belong to separate users. Even though this does not affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a site, providing it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you plan to secure the payment or login information that your site visitors submit, you'll need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

We provide you with dedicated IPs with all of our shared web hosting plans whatever the data center location and you are able to acquire one or several IPs from your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will appear inside your account and you are able to request, view or delete your IPs with just a few clicks. You are able to decide what number of websites or subdomains will use a certain IP as you can assign one with a few clicks to any hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be the main site, that uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer goods or services online and it can have a dedicated IP together with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which 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 couple of 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 Servers

With only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you can add one or a variety of dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated plan and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will allow you to view the available IP addresses and to check those which are in use in no time. If you would like to obtain a new IP for an SSL certificate, you are able to use the auto-configuration function, which is available in our SSL order wizard. When you activate this feature, you won't need to do anything after you post your order since our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, and then add the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. This way, you're able to secure the data that visitors upload on your site even if you lack previous experience with this kind of matters.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

If you purchase a VPS server from our company, you'll get one dedicated IP address automatically and an additional one if you acquire a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You can use the IPs for any purpose - a website, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you'll be able to use to point to your VPS any domain that you intend to host. Also, you can add extra dedicated IPs to the VPS account every time you need them. This can be done through the billing Control Panel that you will get in order to take care of renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it takes no more than a couple of clicks. Shortly after you post your order, the extra IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you're able to use them the way you like.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All of the dedicated web hosting plans that we provide include 3 dedicated IP addresses as standard and absolutely free. You can use them for any type of purpose based on the content that you have on the server - a video game server or a Voice-Over-IP application, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your customers can use to redirect domains to their hosting accounts, and many other things. You will also be able to buy more dedicated IPs via the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel in case you need more than the ones that come with your plan. You can buy the IPs in sets of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server shortly after you submit your order, so that you can start using them with no delays.
