If you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP - an exclusive number which is used to distinguish any kind of device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Considering that there are many more sites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for several sites even if they are owned by several users. While this doesn't affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a given website, providing it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate too, so when you would like to protect the payment or login data that your site visitors submit, you will need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

If you host your sites on our advanced cloud platform and you have a shared hosting plan, you're able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. The aforementioned option is accessible in all the data centers where we supply services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so regardless of your choice throughout the registration process, you will be able to acquire a dedicated IP for your sites. You will be able to add / remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. In case any of the IPs that you buy will be used for an SSL certificate, you could enable the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and then our system will request & assign the IP before it sets up your certificate automatically. Our versatile platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP for a variety of sites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

With just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you can add one or a variety of dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated server and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will allow you to find the available IP addresses and to keep track of the ones which are in use with ease. If you would like to get a new IP for an SSL certificate, you are able to use the auto-configuration function, that's available in our SSL order wizard. If you enable this option, you will not need to do anything after you post your order because our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, and then install the SSL certificate - all of this automatically and without any action on your end. This way, you will be able to shield the details that visitors submit on your site even when you do not have any previous experience with such matters.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

All of our VPS plans come with one dedicated IP as standard and in case you order a web hosting Control Panel (DirectAdmin, cPanel, Hepsia) throughout the signup process, you will obtain an extra one as well completely free. You are able to employ them as you see fit - to access website content, to run a web app, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain that 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 manage all of the plan renewals, upgrades and domain registrations will allow you to order more dedicated IP addresses when you need them for any purpose. Just a few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them right away.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Because you're able to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all of our packages come with three dedicated IP addresses included as standard. In case you want to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a website that you host on the machine, you're able to use the IPs which we provide you with without charge. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you have registered through our company or elsewhere and employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. When you run a web hosting company, for example, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. In case you need more IP addresses than the three our plans provide you with, you'll be able to purchase extra ones in increments of three either throughout the signup process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
