When you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a special number which is used to distinguish any device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP of the server. Since there're many more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for a variety of websites even in case they belong to separate users. While this does not affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly enhance the loading speed of a website, providing it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you would like to protect the payment or login info that your website visitors submit, you should have an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Website Hosting

We provide you with dedicated IP addresses with all our Linux website hosting service regardless of the data center location and you'll be able to purchase one or several IPs using your Hepsia Control Panel. An additional section will show up as part of your account and you will be able to request, delete or view your IPs with a couple of clicks. You can decide how many domains or subdomains will use a given IP as you can assign one with a few clicks to any hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be your main site, that uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be your subdomain where you offer goods or services on the web and it can have a dedicated IP address combined with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which a domain 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 sites to use one and the same dedicated IP as long as there is no SSL activated for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes no more than a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a hosting account previously, you will not have any kind of difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP as an alternative to the server's shared one and you'll be able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you will also see all IPs that your websites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is free or you are already using it. If you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you'll be able to select everything to be installed automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will change the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll install the certificate in a matter of minutes, so you will not need to do anything on your end except for approving the SSL order via e-mail.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

Our Linux VPS servers provide you with one dedicated IP address by default and in case you obtain a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, DirectAdmin, cPanel) during the registration process, you will obtain an additional one too free of cost. You're able to employ them as you decide - to access web content, to run a web application, to set up an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any website which you have and use the latter for any other domain that you need to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you're able to take care of all of the plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will enable 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 will be able to use them immediately.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

In case you order a dedicated server, you probably want to run some web app or host a lot of sites, so we provide 3 dedicated IP addresses free of cost with each package and you will 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 from another company. The last mentioned option is very helpful if you use your dedicated server to host customers' Internet sites due to the fact that it'll give you authority and anonymity as a hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will enable you to add extra IPs as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes only a few clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you'll be able to go ahead and use your new dedicated IP addresses just a few minutes after you submit your order.
