When you host a website on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP - an exclusive number which is used to detect any device connected to the World Wide Web. The domain name that you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Since there're a lot more websites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use a single IP for many different websites even if they are owned by several users. Even though this does not affect the website performance directly, using a dedicated IP can slightly enhance the loading speed of a site, granting it superior positions in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you would like to secure the payment or login data that your website visitors type in, you need an IP along with the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Hosting

If you use some of our cloud hosting packages, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account in no time and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have selected for your account during the registration process, which means that you can take full advantage of this feature in our US, UK and AU facilities. This way, you can have a dedicated IP for an electronic commerce site, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can modify each and every domain or subdomain separately from the Hosted Domains section of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you acquire the SSL through us, you are able to use our auto-configuration tool, which will assign an IP and install the SSL automatically for the website where you'd like to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account, adding a new dedicated IP takes no more than a couple of clicks. Our Hepsia Control Panel is very easy and intuitive to use, so even when you have not had a web hosting account previously, you won't experience any difficulties to order and assign a dedicated IP. Each domain or subdomain within the account can use its own IP address as an alternative to the server's shared one and you can make this change from the Hosted Domains section, where you can also view all IPs that your sites can use and if a dedicated IP is free or you're already using it. If you'd like to have an IP for an SSL certificate, we have an SSL order tool through which you're able to select everything to be installed automatically. When you use this feature, our system will modify the IP of the desired domain/subdomain to a dedicated one and it'll set up the certificate in a couple of minutes, so you shall not have to do anything on your end apart from approving your SSL request through e-mail.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting

If you buy a virtual private server from us, you will have one dedicated IP address as standard and a second one in case you get a website hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You'll be able to use the IP addresses for any sort of purpose - a website, some web app such as a VOIP server, even for private name servers that you are able to use to point to your VPS any website that you would like to host. You can also add extra dedicated IP addresses to your VPS account every time you need them. You can do this via the billing Control Panel that you will get so as to manage renewals, upgrades and domain registrations and it will take only a couple of clicks. Soon after you upload your order, the added IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you can use them as you see fit.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Because all of our dedicated servers hosting feature three dedicated IP addresses as part of the plans by default, we will give you a serious advantage if you want to run any application which requires such an IP. We supply them free of charge and you'll be able to use them for as long as you use your server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain which you host, an SSL certificate for any site on your server, a software server (online games, VOIP), and so on. Through the Upgrades menu in the billing Control Panel that you will obtain to organize renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you'll also be able to get more dedicated IP addresses in groups of three at any moment. They'll be assigned to your server in minutes, so you can start using them for your websites and web-based applications without delay.
