If you host a site on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - an exclusive number that is used to detect every device connected to the Internet. The website name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there're a lot more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for several sites even in case they are owned by different users. Even though this doesn't affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a particular website, providing it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you plan to protect the payment or login info that your site visitors type in, you'll need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting

If you use any of our website hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account in no time and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have picked for the account during the registration process, thus you're able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can adjust each and every domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL from us, you're able to use the auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you would like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you purchase a semi-dedicated server account through our company, you have the option to obtain as many dedicated IPs as you like depending on your preferences. It will take a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to obtain a new IP and a couple of more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is very simple and your site will start loading from your new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will enable you to view all of the IPs which you are able to use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. Provided you'd like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you need a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and set up the certificate as soon as you upload your order, so you won't have to modify anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

All of our VPS web hosting plans feature one dedicated IP by default and when you obtain a website hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, cPanel, Hepsia) throughout the registration process, you'll obtain an extra one as well free of charge. You will be able to employ them the way you like - 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 website that you'd like to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you are able to take care of all of the plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain registrations will enable you to order more dedicated IPs if you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you will be able to use them instantly.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Due to the fact that you're able to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all of our packages feature three dedicated IP addresses included by default. If you wish to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you can use the IPs that we provide without charge. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any website name that you have registered through our company or elsewhere and then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. If you have a website hosting company, for example, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. If you need more IPs than the three the plans provide you with, you are able to get extra ones in increments of three either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
