When you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that's used to detect a device connected to the Web. The domain name that you use for the website is for easy access and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP address of the server. Due to the fact that there are a lot more sites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for a number of sites even in case they belong to separate users. While this does not affect your website performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a given website, granting it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you wish to secure the payment or login information that your site visitors type in, you will need an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

We offer dedicated IPs with all of our shared plans whatever the data center location and you'll be able to purchase 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 just a few clicks. You're able to select how many sites or subdomains will use a given IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to any hostname. For instance, www.domain.com can be the main website, that uses a server's shared IP, while shop.domain.com can be the subdomain where you offer services or goods on the internet and it might have a dedicated IP address together with an SSL certificate. You can switch 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 may also set a few of your sites to use a single dedicated IP as long as there's no SSL activated for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

With only a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel, you can add one or multiple dedicated IP addresses to your semi-dedicated hosting plan and assign them to your sites. The Hosted Domains part of Hepsia will allow you to find the available IPs and to keep track of the ones which are in use with ease. Provided you want to get a new IP for an SSL certificate, you can use the auto-configuration function, which is available in our SSL order wizard. When you activate this option, you won't need to do anything after you submit your order because our system will request a dedicated IP, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, and then install the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without any action on your end. This way, you'll be able to secure the info that visitors submit on your site even when you lack previous experience with such matters.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

All of our VPS web hosting plans come with one dedicated IP address as standard and in case you select a hosting Control Panel (cPanel, DirectAdmin, Hepsia) during the registration process, you will obtain an additional one as well free of cost. You're able to use them as you see fit - to access online 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 website that you plan to host on the server. The billing Control Panel where you'll be able to manage all the plan renewals, upgrades and domain name registrations will allow you to order extra dedicated IP addresses when you need them for any purpose. A few minutes later the IPs will be assigned to your Virtual Server and you can use them immediately.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

In case you get a dedicated server, you probably want to run a web application or host a number of Internet sites, so we provide 3 dedicated IPs without charge with each and every plan and you'll be able to use them as you see fit - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain which you have registered here or through another company. The last option is really useful in case you use the dedicated server to host clients' websites considering that it'll give you credibility and anonymity as a website hosting company. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add extra IP addresses as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes only a couple of clicks in the Upgrades section, therefore you're able to go ahead and employ the brand new dedicated IPs just a few minutes after you submit your order.
