If you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a unique number which is used to detect any device connected to the Web. The website name which you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. As there're far more sites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for a variety of websites even if they are owned by different users. While this does not affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly boost the loading speed of a certain website, providing it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you would like to secure the payment or login information that your website visitors enter, you'll need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

If you use some of our cloud hosting packages, you will be able to add a dedicated IP to your account without any difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with just a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have selected for your account throughout the registration process, which means that you will be able to take advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce website, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can modify each and every domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL from our company, you will be able to use the auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the site where you want to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

With only a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to add one or several dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated hosting service and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will help you see the available IP addresses and to keep track of the ones which are in use with ease. In case you want to obtain a new IP for an SSL certificate, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration function, that's available in our SSL order wizard. If you enable this feature, you will not have to do anything after you submit your order since our system will request a dedicated IP address, assign it to the domain or subdomain involved, then set up the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. This way, you'll be able to protect the details that visitors upload on your site even when you do not have any previous experience with this kind of matters.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

In case you buy a VPS server from us, you will receive one dedicated IP address as standard and a second one when you get a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You are able to use the IPs for any kind of purpose - an Internet 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 plan to host. You can also add more dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account when you need them. You can do this via the billing Control Panel that you'll receive in order to take care of renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations and it takes no more than a couple of clicks. Shortly after you send your order, the added IP addresses will be accessible, so you are able to use them the way you like.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

If you get a dedicated server, you probably plan to run some web application or host a lot of Internet sites, so we supply 3 dedicated IP addresses without charge with each and every package and you can use them the way you like - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name that you've registered here or from another company. The last mentioned option is really useful when you use your dedicated server to host clients' websites since it will give you authority and anonymity as a website hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add more IPs as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes just a few clicks in the Upgrades section, which means that you'll be able to go ahead and start using your new dedicated IPs a couple of minutes after you send your order.
