When you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - a unique number that is used to identify any device connected to the World Wide Web. The website name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there are many more sites than IPs, shared hosting servers use a single IP for a variety of sites even if they belong to several users. While this does not affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a certain website, granting it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to secure the payment or login data that your website visitors enter, you need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting

We offer dedicated IPs with all our Linux cloud web hosting regardless of the data center location and you can purchase one or several IPs via your Hepsia Control Panel. A new section will appear inside your account and you will be able to request, view or delete your IPs with several clicks. You will be able to select how many sites or subdomains will use a particular IP as you can assign one with a few clicks to every hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be your main site, which uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer goods or services on the internet and it can have a dedicated IP combined with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP that a website uses via the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set a few of your websites to use a single dedicated IP given 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 takes just a few 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 obtain and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP address rather than the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also see all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. In case that you want an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you will be able to select everything to be installed automatically. With this feature, our system will change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up the certificate within minutes, so you will not need to do anything on your end except for authorizing your SSL request through email.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

Our Linux VPS hosting service provide you with one dedicated IP address by default and when you get a web hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, Hepsia, cPanel) during the registration process, you'll acquire a second one too free of charge. You will be able to use them as you see fit - to access site content, to run a web application, to set up 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 intend to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you are able to control all of the plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will enable you to order more dedicated IPs if you need them for any purpose. Just a couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you'll be able to use them instantly.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

In case you obtain a dedicated server, you probably would like to run some web app or host numerous websites, so we provide three dedicated IPs free of cost with every single package and you'll be able to use them the way you like - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain that you've registered here or through another company. The last option is very useful when you use the dedicated server to host clients' sites because it'll give you credibility and anonymity as a hosting company. The server billing Control Panel will make it easier to add extra IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes just a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, so you can go ahead and take advantage of the new dedicated IP addresses a few minutes after you send your order.
