When you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - a unique number which is used to identify any kind of device connected to the Web. The website name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Due to the fact that there're a lot more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for a number of sites even if they belong to several users. Even though this does not affect your website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a certain website, giving it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you wish to secure the payment or login details that your website visitors submit, you should have an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting

With a cloud website hosting account on our cloud platform, you're able to buy a dedicated IP address and assign it to any domain or subdomain with a couple of clicks wherever your account is - in the USA, the UK or Australia. This can be done through the Hosted Domains part of our intuitive and user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel where you may also keep track of what IPs are available, what are in use and what sites they are allotted to. If you want to use an SSL certificate to protect the information of your site visitors and you acquire it from us, our system will assign a dedicated IP and install the SSL for you, so you will not be required to anything manually on your end. In the meantime, you can still have a site in a subdomain as an add-on to the main one under a shared IP - a community forum where users can share thoughts and opinions about your services, for instance.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Hepsia Control Panel, that comes with all of our semi-dedicated server packages, will make it really easy to get a dedicated IP address and use it for any site that you have in your account irrespective of whether it's under a domain or a subdomain. With just a couple of clicks you'll be able to order the IP and when our system assigns it, you will be able to set it for one or several websites through the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel. In the same location you will also be able to view what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, a list of the dedicated IP addresses as well as if and what site they are assigned to? If the IP you need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take full advantage of our user-friendly SSL wizard that will make the overall process very simple since it will request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and after that set up the SSL without the need of any action on your side other than placing the order.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

All of our Linux VPS servers include one dedicated IP by default and if you select a hosting Control Panel (cPanel, Hepsia, DirectAdmin) during the signup process, you will obtain an additional one too at no extra cost. You will be 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 plan to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you will be able to manage all the plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain registrations will allow you to order more dedicated IP addresses when you need them for any purpose. A couple of minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them immediately.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

In case you order a dedicated server, you probably would like to run some web application or host a lot of Internet sites, so we provide 3 dedicated IPs free of cost with every single plan and you are able to use them as you see fit - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name which you have registered here or from another company. The last option is very helpful if you use your dedicated server to host customers' Internet sites as it'll give you credibility and anonymity as a web hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add extra IPs as well - the upgrade is in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, so you will be able to go ahead and take advantage of your new dedicated IPs just a few minutes after you send your order.
