If you host a website on a server, it uses the server's shared IP address - a unique number that's used to identify a device connected to the Net. The domain name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Considering that there are far more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for multiple websites even in case they belong to several users. Even though this does not affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly improve the loading speed of a given site, giving it better positions in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you want to secure the payment or login info that your site visitors submit, you should have an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

If you host your websites on our innovative cloud platform and you have a shared hosting package, you'll be able to add a dedicated IP to your account at any time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with only a few clicks. This option is available in all the data centers where we supply services - Chicago (US), London (UK) and Sydney (AU), so irrespective of your choice during the registration process, you will be able to get a dedicated IP for your sites. You'll be able to add or remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any time. In case any of the IPs that you obtain will be used for an SSL certificate, you can enable the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and then our system will request and assign the IP before it sets up the certificate automatically. Our adaptable platform will allow you to use a dedicated IP address for a variety of sites as well if it is not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you get a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you have the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IP addresses as you like depending on your preferences. It will take just a few clicks inside the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel to get your new IP plus several more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The whole process is very simple and your site will start loading from the new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will enable you to see all the IP addresses which you can use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate on any of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that can assign a new IP and install the certificate once you send your order, so you don't need to customize anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS server from us, you'll receive one dedicated IP address as standard and an extra one in case you get a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You will be able to use the IPs for any sort of purpose - a site, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you can use to point to your VPS any domain that you want to host. In addition, you can add extra dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account any time you need them. You can do this through the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain to manage renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it takes just a few clicks. Soon after you post your order, the additional IP addresses will be available, so you can use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Since all our Linux dedicated servers come with three dedicated IP addresses included in the plans by default, we will give you a serious advantage in case you want to run any app that requires this kind of an IP. We provide them free of cost and you are able to use them for as long as you use the server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain which you host, an SSL certificate for any website on your server, a software server (online games, VOIP), and so on. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll receive to control renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you can also get more dedicated IPs in sets of three any time. They'll be assigned to your server in a few minutes, so you can start using them for your sites and web-based applications without delay.
