If you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - a special number that's used to identify every device connected to the Net. The domain name that you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there're many more sites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use the same IP for multiple websites even if they belong to several users. Even though this doesn't affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a certain website, providing it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to secure the payment or login information that your site visitors type in, you will need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

When you use some of our shared hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP to your account without any difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid whichever data center you have chosen for your account throughout the signup process, which means that it's possible to use this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an e-commerce site, for example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP because you can modify each domain or subdomain individually through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through our company, you're able to use the auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you want to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes no more than a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even when you haven't had a web hosting account before, you will not have any kind of difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP address. Each domain or subdomain in the account can use its own IP as an alternative to the server's shared one and you are able to make this change in the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also find all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is available or you are already using it. If you wish to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you are able to select everything to be set up automatically. Using this feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will install the certificate within a matter of minutes, so you shall not have to do anything on your end other than authorizing your SSL request via e-mail.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Because all our dedicated web hosting plans feature 3 dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans as standard, we will give you a serious advantage in case you wish to run any application which needs this kind of an IP. We supply them absolutely free and you're able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain that you host, an SSL certificate for any website on your server, a software server (online games, VOIP), etc. Through the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll obtain to take care of renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you'll also be able to get more dedicated IP addresses in sets of three at any time. They will be assigned to your server in no time, so you can start using them for your websites and web-based apps without delay.
