When you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a unique number that is used to identify any device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name which you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there are a lot more websites than IPs, shared hosting servers use a single IP for many different sites even in case they belong to several users. While this does not affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a given site, giving it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you plan to secure the payment or login data that your site visitors enter, you'll need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

We provide dedicated IPs with all of our shared web hosting regardless of the data center location and you'll be able to purchase one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. A fresh section will show up as part of your account and you can request, delete or view your IPs with a few clicks. You can decide what number of domains or subdomains will use a particular IP since you can assign one with a few clicks to every hostname. For example, www.domain.com can be the main website, which uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer services or goods on the internet and it can have a dedicated IP combined with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which a domain uses through the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set some of your websites to use the same dedicated IP provided that there's no SSL installed for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

With only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you can add one or multiple dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated server and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will help you see the available IP addresses and to check those which are in use with ease. If you wish to get a new IP for an SSL certificate, you will be able to use the auto-configuration function, which is available in our SSL order wizard. When you activate this feature, you won't have to do anything after you post your order since our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, then add the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without any action on your end. In this way, you will be able to shield the details that visitors post on your website even when you don't have any previous experience with this kind of matters.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

If you acquire a VPS server from our company, you'll have one dedicated IP address automatically and an extra one when you obtain a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You're able to use the IPs for any purpose - a site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you're able to use to point to your VPS any website which you intend to host. Additionally, you can add extra dedicated IPs to your VPS account when you need them. This can be done via the billing Control Panel that you'll get so as to manage renewals, upgrade purchases and domain name registrations and it will take just a couple of clicks. Soon after you send your order, the extra IP addresses will be accessible, so you're able to use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Because you are able to run more or less anything on a dedicated server, all our plans feature three dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you wish to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs that we provide you with for free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you have registered with our company or elsewhere and then use them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you own a web hosting company, for instance, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. If you need more IPs than the three our plans include, you can get additional ones in increments of three either throughout the signup process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
