If you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a unique number that is used to identify any device connected to the Net. The domain name which you use for the site is for easy accessibility and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP address of the server. Due to the fact that there are a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared website hosting servers use a single IP for multiple websites even in case they belong to separate users. Even though this does not affect your site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly boost the loading speed of a given site, providing it higher positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you would like to protect the payment or login data that your website visitors type in, you should have an IP together with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Hosting

In case you host your sites on our revolutionary cloud platform and you have a shared hosting plan, 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 of the data center facilities where we offer services - Chicago (US), Coventry (UK) and Sydney (AU), so whatever your choice throughout the registration process, you'll be able to acquire a dedicated IP address for your sites. You can add / remove an IPas well as to keep track of the free and used ones at any moment. If any of the IPs that you buy will be used for an SSL certificate, you could activate the automatic configuration feature in our SSL order wizard and our system will request and assign the IP before it installs your certificate automatically. Our versatile platform will enable you to use a dedicated IP for various websites as well if it's not in use by an SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding your new dedicated IP takes no more than a few clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very simple and intuitive to use, so even if you haven't had a hosting account before, you will not encounter any difficulties to obtain and assign a dedicated IP. Every domain or subdomain inside the account can use its own IP instead of the server's shared one and you will be able to make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you'll also see all IPs that your websites can use as well as if a dedicated IP is free 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. Using this particular feature, our system will change the IP address of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up the certificate within minutes, so you will not have to do anything on your end other than authorizing the SSL order via email.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Since our dedicated web hosting plans feature 3 dedicated IP addresses provided in the plans as standard, we will give you a head start if you'd like to run any software which needs this kind of an IP. We supply them free of charge and you are able to use them for as long as you use the server for anything you'd like - child name servers for any domain that you host, an SSL certificate for any site on the server, a software server (online games, VOIP), and so on. Using the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you'll receive to take care of renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you will also be able to acquire more dedicated IPs in groups of three whenever you need. They will be assigned to your server very quickly, so you can start using them for your websites and web-based applications without delay.
