When you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - a special number which is used to distinguish every device connected to the Web. The domain 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. Considering that there're a lot more sites than IP addresses, shared hosting servers use the very same IP for several websites even in case they are owned by separate users. While this does not affect the website performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a website, granting it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so when you want to protect the payment or login details that your website visitors enter, you will need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Website Hosting

We supply dedicated IPs with all of our cloud website hosting plans whatever the data center location and you're able to get one or several IPs through your Hepsia Control Panel. An extra section will appear inside your account and you're able to request, delete or view your IPs with several clicks. You're able to decide how many websites or subdomains will use a certain IP as you can assign one with a couple of clicks to every hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be the main site, which uses a server's shared IP, and shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer services or goods on the web and it could have a dedicated IP address along with an SSL certificate. You can change the IP which a site uses through the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You can also set a couple of of your websites to use one and the same dedicated IP provided that there is no SSL installed for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes only 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 encounter any difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP. Any domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP other than the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change inside the Hosted Domains section, where you will also see all IPs that your websites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is free or you're already using it. If you need an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you will be able to select everything to be set up automatically. When you use this particular feature, our system will modify the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up the certificate in a matter of minutes, so you shall not have to do anything on your end other than approving the SSL order via email.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

All of our VPS web hosting plans include one dedicated IP by default and if you select a hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin) throughout the registration process, you will obtain a second one too without charge. You will be able to employ them as you see fit - to access website content, to run a web app, to install an SSL certificate, or even to register private name servers for any domain name that you have and use the latter for any other domain that you would like to host on your server. The billing Control Panel where you're able to manage all plan renewals, upgrades as well as domain registrations will enable you to order additional dedicated IPs when you need them for any purpose. Just a few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you will be able to use them without delay.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Since you can run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all our plans feature three dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you plan to launch some server software or to activate an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs that we supply for free. In addition, you can register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any domain name that you've registered with our company or somewhere else and then employ them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you manage a website hosting company, for example, this option will contribute to your credibility as an independent service provider. In case you need more IP addresses than the three the packages come with, you can buy additional ones in increments of 3 either during the signup process or from your billing Control Panel any time.
