When you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - a special number that is used to distinguish any kind of device connected to the Internet. The website name which you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there are many more websites than IPs, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for a variety of sites even in case they are owned by several users. While this doesn't affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a website, providing it higher rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is necessary for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so if you wish to secure the payment or login information that your site visitors submit, you need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

If you use any of our cloud hosting plans, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account in no time and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have picked for the account during the registration process, thus you can take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for example, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can modify each domain or subdomain independently from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through our company, you'll be able to use the 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

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll have the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IP addresses as you'd like depending on your business needs. It takes just a couple of clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to get your new IP and a few more so as to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is very simple and your website will start opening from the new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will allow you to view all the IPs that you are able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. Provided you'd like to use an SSL certificate on any of your sites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you may take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, which will assign a new IP and set up the certificate the moment you submit your order, so you don't have to customize anything in your semi-dedicated web hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

All VPS hosting plans that we offer feature a dedicated IP, so you will not share the IP with any other client with a different account on the very same physical machine. If you select a hosting Control Panel for the server throughout the registration process, you'll receive a second dedicated IP too and you're able to use it for any content that you host on the VPS - a website, an app, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, and so on. In case you require more IPs, you can order them as an extra upgrade using your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server within a matter of minutes. You will be able to take care of your IPs with ease through your web hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you'll receive to maintain the virtual machine.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All dedicated web hosting plans that we supply include three dedicated IP addresses by default and cost-free. You are able to use them for any kind of purpose according to the content that you've got on the server - a video game server or a Voice-Over-IP app, an SSL certificate for a site that you host, private name servers for a reseller domain which your clients may use to point domain names to their website hosting accounts, and many more. You can also acquire extra dedicated IP addresses through the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with the server. You're able to purchase the IPs in groups of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server shortly after you submit your order, so you can start using them without delays.
