If you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP address - an exclusive number that is used to detect any kind of device connected to the Web. The website name that you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the site visitors, but on a more basic level, their browser connects to the IP of the server. As there are many more websites than IP addresses, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for a number of sites even in case they belong to different users. While this does not affect your site performance directly, having a dedicated IP can slightly increase the loading speed of a given site, providing it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is needed for the setup of an SSL certificate too, so if you want to protect the payment or login details that your site visitors enter, you should have an IP in addition to the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Cloud Web Hosting

We offer dedicated IP addresses with all our Linux cloud web hosting whatever the data center location and you're able to get one or several IPs via your Hepsia Control Panel. A new section will appear inside your account and you'll be able to request, delete or view your IPs with a couple of clicks. You're able to decide what number of websites or subdomains will use a certain IP since you can assign one with a couple of clicks to every hostname. To give an example, www.domain.com can be the main site, which uses a server's shared IP, whereas shop.domain.com can be a subdomain where you offer services or goods online and it might have a dedicated IP address combined with an SSL certificate. You can switch the IP which a domain uses from the Hosted Domains section where you can also keep track which IPs are in use and which ones are available. You may also set some of your websites to use the same dedicated IP as long as there's no SSL set up for it.

Dedicated IP Address in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server account through us, you'll have the option to acquire as many dedicated IP addresses as you like depending on your needs. It takes a few clicks inside the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel to purchase a new IP plus a couple of more to assign it to a domain or a subdomain. The process is very simple and your site will start opening from the new IP address in a few minutes. Hepsia will allow you to view all IPs that you will be able to use, both shared & dedicated, and which of the latter are available or taken. In case you would like to use an SSL certificate on some of your websites and you want a dedicated IP for it, you can take full advantage of our SSL order wizard, that will assign a new IP and install the certificate the moment you send your order, so you do not need to change anything in your semi-dedicated website hosting account by yourself.

Dedicated IP Address in VPS Hosting

If you get a virtual private server from our company, you will have one dedicated IP address by default and a second one in case you acquire a web hosting Control Panel (Hepsia, cPanel, DirectAdmin). You'll be able to use the IP addresses for any 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 which you would like to host. You may also add extra dedicated IP addresses to the VPS account any time you need them. This can be done through the billing Control Panel that you will get in order to manage renewals, upgrade purchases and domain registrations and it will take only a few clicks. Soon after you send your order, the added IP addresses will be at your disposal, so you're able to use them the way you like.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Web Hosting

In case you purchase a dedicated server, you probably would like to run a web app or host a number of Internet sites, so we supply 3 dedicated IPs gratis with every single package and you're able to use them as you see fit - a software server, an SSL certificate, even child name servers for a domain name that you have registered here or through another company. The aforementioned option is very helpful when you use the dedicated server to host users' sites considering that it will give you trustworthiness and anonymity as a hosting supplier. The server billing Control Panel will allow you to add additional IPs as well - the upgrade comes in increments of three and takes just a few clicks in the Upgrades section, so you can go ahead and use the brand new dedicated IPs a few minutes after you submit your order.
