When you host a site on a server, it makes use of the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number which is used to distinguish any device connected to the Internet. The domain name which you use for the site is for quick access and convenience of the website visitors, but on a lower level, their Internet browser connects to the IP of the server. Because there are many more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the very same IP for many different sites even in case they belong to different users. Even though this doesn't affect the site performance directly, having a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a site, granting it superior rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the installation of an SSL certificate as well, so when you wish to secure the payment or login information that your website visitors submit, you should have an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Hosting

If you use any of our hosting plans, you will be able to add a dedicated IP address to your account without any difficulty and assign it to any domain or subdomain with no more than a couple of clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you have selected for your account during the registration process, so it is 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 e-commerce site, for instance, whereas a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can modify each domain or subdomain individually from the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you would like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you obtain the SSL through us, you will be able to use the auto-configuration instrument, that will assign an IP and set up the SSL automatically for the website where you want to use them.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With only a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel, you can add one or several dedicated IP addresses to your Linux semi-dedicated hosting and assign them to your websites. The Hosted Domains section of Hepsia will help you find the available IPs and to check the ones which are in use in no time. Provided you would like to obtain a new IP for an SSL certificate, you will be able to use the auto-configuration function, that's available in our SSL order wizard. When you enable this feature, you won't have to do anything after you submit your order because our system will request a dedicated IP address, assign it to the domain or subdomain in question, then add the SSL certificate - all this automatically and without any action on your end. That way, you can protect the info that visitors post on your website even if you don't have any previous experience with this type of matters.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Web Hosting

All Linux VPS web hosting that we offer come with a dedicated IP address, so you won't share your IP with some other customer with some other account on the very same server. In case you select a hosting Control Panel for the server during the signup process, you will receive an extra dedicated IP as well and you can use it for any content which you host on the VPS - a site, an application, an SSL certificate, a VOIP server, etcetera. In case you would like to have more IPs, you can order them as an additional upgrade from your billing Control Panel and they'll be assigned to your server very quickly. You will be able to manage the IPs without any difficulty from your website hosting Control Panel and the virtualization admin panel that you'll obtain to take care of the virtual machine.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Due to the fact that it is possible to run almost anything on a dedicated server, all our plans feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included as standard. If you wish to launch some server software or to set up an SSL certificate for a site that you host on the machine, you'll be able to use the IPs which we provide absolutely free. You can also register child name servers with one or two of the IP addresses for any website name that you've registered with our company or any place else and then use them to direct other domains to the dedicated server. When you run a website hosting company, for example, the aforementioned option will contribute to your credibility as a standalone service provider. If you need more IP addresses than the three the packages feature, you're able to buy extra ones in increments of 3 either during the registration process or through your billing Control Panel any time.
