When you host a site on a server, it employs the server's shared IP - a special number that is used to identify any kind of device connected to the Web. The website name which you use for the website is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there're a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for several sites even in case they belong to separate users. While this does not affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a particular website, giving it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you want to secure the payment or login info that your site visitors type in, you need an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Web Hosting

When you use some of our web hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP to your account without any difficulty and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've picked for your account during the signup process, therefore you're 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 site, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can adjust each and every domain or subdomain independently through the Hosted Domains area of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL through us, you can use our auto-configuration instrument, which will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP address takes only a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a website hosting account before, you won't encounter any kind of difficulties to get and assign a dedicated IP address. Each domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP in place of the server's shared one and you can make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you will also view all IPs that your websites can use and if a dedicated IP is accessible or you are already using it. If you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order instrument through which you will be able to select everything to be set up automatically. With this particular feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it will set up the certificate within a matter of minutes, so you won't need to do anything on your end except for authorizing your SSL order through e-mail.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

All of the dedicated web hosting plans that we provide include 3 dedicated IP addresses by default and absolutely free. You'll be able to employ them for any type of purpose based on the content that you have on the server - an online 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 point domains to their hosting accounts, etc. You will also be able to get additional dedicated IPs via the Upgrades section of your billing Control Panel if you need more than the ones that come with your plan. You're able to acquire the IPs in sets of three and they'll be added to your dedicated server shortly after you send your order, so that you can use them without delays.
