If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - a unique number which is used to detect any kind of device connected to the Internet. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there are far more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for many different sites even if they belong to several users. Even though this doesn't affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a particular website, providing it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you wish to secure the payment or login details that your website visitors type in, you need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting

When you use some of our cloud web hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account with ease and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have picked for your account during the signup process, thus 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 e-commerce site, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can modify each domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from us, you are able to use the auto-configuration tool, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the site where you wish to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our semi-dedicated server plans, will make it very simple to acquire a dedicated IP address and use it for any site that you have in your account no matter if it is under a domain or a subdomain. With only a couple of clicks you are able to order the IP and as soon as our system assigns it, you can set it for one or more sites from the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel. In the same location you'll also be able to see what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, an index of the dedicated IP addresses as well as if and what website they're assigned to? In case the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to take advantage of our useful SSL wizard which will make the entire process very easy because it will request and assign an IP to the desired domain/subdomain and after that set up the SSL without the need of any action on your side other than placing the order.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

Our Linux VPS hosting service include one dedicated IP address by default and when you get a hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, Hepsia, cPanel) throughout the signup process, you will get a second one as well completely free. You will be able to use them as you decide - to access web 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 website that you'd like to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you will be able to manage all plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will enable you to order extra dedicated IPs if 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

Because you can run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our plans come with 3 dedicated IP addresses included by default. If you plan to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you can use the IPs which we provide free of charge. You may also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any website name that you've registered with us or somewhere else and then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you run a hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone service provider. When you need more IPs than the three the packages include, you're able to buy additional ones in increments of 3 either throughout the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
