If you host a website on a server, it employs the server's shared IP address - a special number that is used to identify any kind of device connected to the Web. The domain name which you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Since there are many more websites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for a variety of websites even if they belong to several users. While this doesn't affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly improve the loading speed of a website, providing it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is essential for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so when you want to secure the payment or login details that your site visitors type in, you'll need an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Shared Web Hosting

If you use some of our shared web hosting packages, you can add a dedicated IP to your account in no time and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have chosen for the account during the registration process, thus it's possible to take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. In this way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce website, for instance, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP since you can edit each domain or subdomain individually from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL from us, you can use our auto-configuration tool, 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 buy a semi-dedicated server account through us, you will have the opportunity to acquire as many dedicated IP addresses as you would like depending on your needs. It takes just a few clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to buy your new IP plus a few more in order to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is very simple and your site will start loading from your new IP address very quickly. Hepsia will allow you to see all the IP addresses that you can use, both shared and dedicated, and which of the latter are free or taken. Provided you want to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you can take advantage of our SSL order wizard, which will assign a new IP and install the certificate as soon as you send your order, so you do not need to customize anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Servers

If you obtain a VPS server from us, you will get a dedicated IP address by default and an additional one in case you get a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You will be able to use the IP addresses for any sort of purpose - a website, some web application such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you'll be able to use to point to your VPS any website that you want to host. In addition, you can add extra dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account when you need them. You can do this via the billing Control Panel that you'll receive so as to take care of renewals, upgrade purchases and domain name registrations and it takes just a few clicks. Shortly after you submit your order, the added IP addresses will be available, so you can use them the way you like.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers

Since it's possible to run pretty much anything on a dedicated server, all of our packages feature three dedicated IP addresses included by default. In case you plan to launch some server software or to install an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you can use the IPs that we provide you with absolutely free. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IPs for any domain name that you have registered through our company or any place else and employ them to point other domains to the dedicated server. If you have a hosting company, for instance, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone supplier. In case you need more IP addresses than the three our packages include, you will be able to purchase extra ones in increments of 3 either throughout the registration process or from your billing Control Panel at any time.
