When you host a website on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - a unique number that's used to identify every device connected to the Net. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there are a lot more sites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use the very same IP for many different sites even if they belong to separate users. While this does not affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a certain site, providing it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you want to protect the payment or login info that your site visitors enter, you will need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

If you use any of our shared web hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP address to your account with ease and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've chosen for your account during the sign-up process, so you'll be able to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can adjust each domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. When you need a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL through us, you'll be able to use our auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you would like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

With just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to add one or multiple dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated hosting plan and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will help you view the available IPs and to keep track of those 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. When you enable this option, you won't need to do anything after you submit your order since our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, then install the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without the need of any action on your end. This way, you're able to protect the info that visitors submit on your site even if you do not have any previous experience with this type of matters.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

We give a free dedicated IP address with each VPS hosting plans that we supply and if you choose a web hosting Control Panel on the VPS order page, you'll acquire an extra dedicated IP for free. Your addresses can be employed for any type of purpose - an Internet site in case you would like to install an SSL certificate or a server IP when you plan to manage some application such as VOIP software, for example. You can also use the IP addresses to create child name servers for one or more website names that you have and after that you can set them as NS records for any other domain that you would like to point to your Virtual Server. Any time you need extra dedicated IP addresses, it will take you just a few clicks from your billing Control Panel to get them and they'll be allotted to your server in a matter of minutes.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans that we offer come with three dedicated IP addresses by default and free of charge. You will be able to employ them for any type of purpose depending on the content that you've got on the server - a video game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a website that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain that your clients can use to direct domain names to their website hosting accounts, and many more. You'll also be able to obtain more dedicated IPs via the Upgrades part of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones which come with your server. You'll be able to purchase the IPs in groups of three and they shall be added to your dedicated server soon after you send your order, so that you can use them without any delays.
