If you host a site on a server, it works by using the server's shared IP - a unique number that is used to detect every device connected to the Web. The website name which you use for the website is for easy accessibility and convenience of the visitors, but on a more basic level, their web browser connects to the IP address of the server. Because there're many more sites than IPs, shared web hosting servers use the same IP for a number of websites even if they belong to separate users. Even though this doesn't affect the site performance directly, using a dedicated IP may slightly increase the loading speed of a given website, giving it better rankings in search engine results. Such an IP is required for the setup of an SSL certificate as well, so if you want to protect the payment or login data that your site visitors enter, you will need an IP alongside the SSL.

Dedicated IP Address in Hosting

If you use any of our hosting plans, you can add a dedicated IP to your account with ease and assign it to a domain or subdomain with just a few clicks. This is valid no matter which data center you've chosen for the account during the signup process, therefore you are able to take 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 example, while a forum attached to it can use the server's shared IP as you can modify each and every domain or subdomain separately through the Hosted Domains part of your Hepsia Control Panel. If you'd like a dedicated IP for an SSL certificate and you get the SSL through us, you'll be able to use the auto-configuration instrument, 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 Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our semi-dedicated server packages, will make it very simple to acquire a dedicated IP and use it for any website that you have in the account regardless if it's under a domain or a subdomain. With just a few clicks you can order the IP and once our system assigns it, you'll be able to set it for one or multiple websites from the Hosted Domains part of the Control Panel. In the same place you'll also be able to see what IP is used by each domain or subdomain, a list of the dedicated IP addresses as well as if and what website they're assigned to? In case the IP you'll need is for an SSL certificate, you will be able to take full advantage of our user-friendly SSL wizard which will make the entire process really easy as it'll request and assign an IP to the preferred domain/subdomain and after that install the SSL without any action on your side apart from placing the order.

Dedicated IP Address in Dedicated Hosting

Since our Linux dedicated hosting feature 3 dedicated IP addresses included in the plans by default, we'll give you a head start in case you'd like to run any app which requires this kind of an IP. We supply them free of charge and you can use them for as long as you use the server for anything you would like - child name servers for any domain name that 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 receive to control renewals, service upgrades and domain registrations, you can also order more dedicated IP addresses in groups of three whenever you need. They'll be assigned to your server in no time, so you can start using them for your sites and web-based applications without delay.
